Brake drums

I'm really having trouble getting my drums off. Any tricks? I have a 72 dodge m300 chassis

Did you go into the backside and run the adjustments in?

That was the first thing I did, I made my own drum puller last night. I'm going to try it this morning, hopefully it works, here's a pic, I will place my bottle jack on the plate in the middle, and use the hooks and chains as puller arms, the breaking strength on that is 4000 lbs. So if this can't do it, I'm renting an oxy acetylene torch and melting it off

Yea I wish you said that early, I just realized that after destroying the drum, anyone know where I can get that drum and hub assembly?
