left side has anchor bolt that should be wired so as to not back out. remove this. right side has spring tension bolt that adjusts shoes, and a screw with nuts to prevent bottom shoe from dropping. remove these and you are home free. if you need to remove drum, you must pull rear driveshaft. use some pb blaster on right side hardware after cleaning any grease or rust. i suggest that if you do not have a manual, take the time to draw a picture of how things are together---before removal--- makes guessing a thing of the past. maybe even a snapshot for future reference.

Yes, that's it exactly. I crawled under again today to get a better look at it.
Thanks. Oh, and I was able to move the truck today for the first time since the tow truck parked it in my driveway. The parking brake works! Maybe not as well as I'd like, but it prevented the truck from rolling down my sloped driveway in neutral. I may get away with just removing, cleaning, reinstalling and adjusting it.
I will be getting that Master Parts catalog CD. That's the one I was asking about earlier.
