So I wanted to replace my rear shoes, and so far I can't get the drums off...they are incredibly rusted. The two screws that hold the drum on wouldn't budge. One was stripped, apparently someone else tried to get the drum off and failed?

Anyway, I drilled the screws out, but still can't get the drum off... tried PB blaster, heat, beating the hell out of it, but it just wouldn't budge. I know it has the threaded holes for inserting a bolt and pressing against the hub, but I couldn't find one that fit. Does anyone know what size bolt I need for that?

I also think I'm going to rent a drum puller from the Zone tomorrow and try that. Aside from that, does anyone have any advice, maybe something I haven't tried or am not aware of?

This is on a 94 escort lx. Thanks.

So I ended up getting it off with the puller. Tightened it way up and then it came off with a loud pop. I was going to do the other side today, but now it's raining =(. Thanks for the advice everyone.
