Answer

I have a 1994 Escort, so I am not sure the answer is the same, but here goes. There are a couple of Phillips screws that hold the brake drum in place. If you remove those screws, and thread them into a pair of alternate threaded holes on the drum, the screws push against a solid plate and force the drum free. When I did this, I found the screws so hard to turn, because the removal holes were rusty, that I stripped the screw head and could not force the drum off. I took one of the screws to the hardware store and found hex-head bolts that were threaded the same. Tightening those bolts with a ratchet made it an easy task. Of course, you need to use the original screws, or exact replacements, to secure the drums when you re-install them.

You will need 2 m8 bolts about 2 inchs long to tread in to the alternate threaded holes. I would buy these from the hardware store before you get started.
