Pure fun. First you want to back off the adjustment of the shoes through the backing plate. If the shoes wore into drum then it will retain the drum in place. If there are any threaded holes on the drum where it meet the hub, you can run a bolt into these two holes and slowly work it off. If not take a big hammer and whack the drum between the stud until it releases. If there is any areas that you can squeeze a little penetrating fluid into, it will help. Post your findings.

>>>Do you know the thread size of the threaded holes? I have taken several whacks with a hammer to the point where I think will damage the drum.

I just removed a set of drums on a '99 Civic a few minutes ago using 8mm X 20mm bolts. I've also seen 12mm mentioned. Try putting a 5/16 bolt into the hole. If it slides all the way in (about 1/4") you probably need a 12mm bolt. If the threads catch but will only go in a half turn or so, you'll need 8mm.
