I'm replacing the rear shoes (I've got a 73 with the Girling drums) and the right drum won't come off. It's not rusted to the hub as often happens. It will come off about 1/4" then won't go any further. It turns fine, will even rock back and forth. The left drum came off easily.

I loosened the adjustment screw on the backing plate all the way. The way it gets stuck just as it gets almost off makes it seem like there might be a bump on the axle end that it's catching on.

Any ideas? I can't think of anything else to do except go get a puller.
