rear shoes
#11
If your drums were easy to get off, check that the self adjusters are ok. The 'star' wheel has an angled bit of metal to stop it winding back. If this isn't in contact properly the self adjuster won't adjust. I had this on one side after my brakes were overhauled by a garage!

One of my manuals says to back off the shoes by pressing on the handbrake lever with a screwdriver through a wheel nut hole in the 5/7 o'clock angle (towards the front I think). Not easy to do unless you are used to the damn things. I hate drum brakes...

Easiest way to look at the shoes is to remove the inspection plug in the backplate.
With a bit of patience you should be able to back off the self adjuster as well,refer attached PDF.



Thanks for the pdf saves skinning the knuckles

The original poster was lucky ;-)
Just for advice for others incase---
I had to warm the hub up with a blow torch and gently warm the hubs and kept tapping the hub with a hammer until the hubs came off. They we stuck on by the crap that had glued them to the hub centres.
Kind of scary but easier that I thought -just be careful where you point the torch, Tried a hot air gun but that didn't produce enough heat
