Please post the year of your machine. Do you have the cover off? There is a cover bolted on over the brake drum. If so, does the drum wiggle at all, or is it completely stuck? Make sure the brakes are completely released, you may try loosening the adjustment screws all the way. Also, there may be a dampener ring in the drum that is hanging up on the shoes. You may find a service manual to be of great help as well.

* Adjusted your thread title to include year and make, also issue.

Sometimes you need to use a hammer and give it a couple of good hits toward the center on the front of the drum, to free it off the spline, otherwise you may just have a seized bearing race and will need a small brake pulller that you can probably get at an autoparts store or Sears. If that's teh case, you will need to replace the bearing.

Actually, I'm not 100% sure on that model if the bearing is inside the drum or in a hub assembly...:confused:
