With a hammer, not a joking. hit it on the back side of the top out, but please take the tire off first.

Better solution:

First take off the two screws.These are the countersunk holes with Phillips head screw. These screws are holding the drum.

The brake drum has one or two threaded holes. These are not the countersunk holes with Phillips head screw that hold the drum to the wheel flange but are in the other one or two spaces between the lug bolt holes. On my ZX2, these holes are threaded for a 1/4 inch bolt (1/2 inch wrench), 16 threads per inch. Thread a bolt at least one inch long into each hole and tighten the bolt. If your car has only one hole as does mine, tighten the bolt to apply pressure to one side of the drum, then use a pry bar to ease the other side of the drum off. The lug nut wrench with the jack makes a good pry bar for this.

Brake drums are not attached with fasteners, they just pull off once wheel is out of the way.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck. Remove the brake pads. When the brake drum is not loose you can tap on it with a hammer or mallet. Once the brake drum is loose it will slide off.

Take off the tire, remove the 4-13mm nuts on the backside of the wheel, pull the drum (and spindle) off as an assembly.

Remove the wheels then the drums should just slide off. If they are rusted on, WD40 and a hammer should do it. If the shoes have scored the drums, you have to retract the shoes first. If you can't do that you can pry the drums off and ruin the springs and fittings. You have to replace them and know how they go if you do that.

you don't specify what kind of ford. if it's a pick up back drums are one piece with the wheel bearing hubs so you need to remove the axle and the front bearing . If it's a car, the drums are usually hold in place by 2 screw in the front near the wheel studs. hope this help
