Do I need to explain why I might mention this? That was a forehead slapper after fiddling around for a few minutes...
Same here on my old '92, except I think it was about an hour before I clued in.

It was a combination of things.

Rust, plus lots and lots of gunk on the adjuster. Where I thought I'd backed the adjuster off, turned out to be just a jammed adjuster.

Solution: Cut a hole in the drum, and find this out, then unjam the adjuster and got the drum off pretty easily.

Then found that I need that axle jig after all. I see no way to press this baby off without it.

So much for a quick, easy repair.
