Then suggestion regarding backing off on the star gear is the first step. 
However, if that does not work, rent a large brake drum puller. 
The drums become attached at the hub in the center. I experienced the problem 
and tried heat, penetrating oil and numerous shots with a hammer to no avail.
If there are no rental places nearby, Eastwood and J.C. Whitney sell them for 
about $29.00. 
Attach the drum puller and crank down on the drum until it starts to distort 
and then hit the center driver with a large hammer. That should do the trick. 
oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
