The brake drums slid off easily. They were not rusted on. Just removed the center bolt in the shaft and they slid right out of there. BUT..they were not the problem. Getting the old seal out is another story. It took me 1 hour to get one side out. AFter getting one out, I just threw up my hands and quit and will go back at it and get the other one out tomorrow. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE SEAL NUMBER because, I have looked the old seal over and over and cannot find a number anywhere even after cleaning it up.
