You should only have to remove the centre wheel bearing nut and washer , make sure the hand brake isn't on and pull the drum off.

Make sure the handbrake cables are slack, loosen the adjustment nuts behind the handbrake lever and/or disconnect the cables at the back if necessary.

If the drum is very worn there may be a ridge behind the shoes making it difficult to get the drum past them. In this case keep turning the drum as you gradually work it off over the shoes.

If there is a ridge, have the drums skimmed if the inside diameters are within tolerance - the maximum is shown on them, or preferably, replace them.
I have found drums which are skimmed are sometimes not perfectly round, probably due to worn-out equipment.
