    I finally got the star loosened and the drum is turning freely by hand. Finding the star was difficult as it does not line up with the access hole. I have soaked the studs and around the hub with penetrating oil and tapped all around with a hammer to try to loosen the drum. It appears the drum slips over the hub but nothing is budging. Not even a wiggle. Am I missing a step? Any advice?

    Take it off all in 1 piece. Tear apart locking hub to get to the nut.

    Those drums are swedged to the studs.You need to remove the drum/hub in one piece ,remove the locking hub,then the big nuts and pull it all off

    I wouldn't do that Jeff,they are pressed in,not suppose to come apart unless you use a swedge cutter .You need to drive the studs out to separate.Only time you need to is for new drums,that I don't know if you can get or not.
