Thanks Howard. The drums came off easily 2 years ago when I re-did all the brakes. I had properly torqued the axle nut after doing the brakes 2 years ago, so I guess that is why it is not coming apart so easily. Good idea with the propane torch.

Like Howard I had to use heat on two different cars. One took several days to pop. Maxed out the impact guns, and beat the dogbone with a sledge until I was tired. I let it sit a day or two, hitting it with heat now and then, and eventually got it. But that drum had probably not been off in many decades. Yours will probably pop once you are able to bang on it without bothering neighbors.
