1970 F250 rear brake drum removal

I got a 1970 F 250 Ranger. I had a wheel cylinder go out (leaking brake fluid). I got the tire off, and removed the axle cover and took out the axle. I am having an issue removing the LARGE nut holding on the bearings and drum. Is there a special tool for the nut removal? Here is a picture of my situation! Thanks.

There is a special socket (2 3/8" ??). Open the tabs of the lock first. Some have used a center punch or a chisel to remove the nut. Behind the locking tab is another nut.

How do i open the "tabs"? What are tabs? I see there are some teeth or studs sticking out from behind the nut. I assume this is going to be a real bugger, given the chisle marks present.

Some of the tabs should bent around the nut on the flat part of the nut.. Use a chisel to straighten them out and pick up the proper socket. They are under 20 at the parts store.

Yes, there is a nut but behind that nut is a ring with locking tabs that are bent to the side of the nut to keep it from turning. Use a small chisel to bend (not cut) those tabs away from the nut. The nut will then come off. Then the ring with the tabs, then the other nut. http://fordification.com/tech/images...llFloating.jpg
