Hello
Gerat advice already.
I suggest yo have the proper tools. Take a look

The tools on the left are used to remove the springs that hold the shoes to the plate.
The tool third from right is used to remove the main springs. You can do the job with pliers but this tool makes it safer and easier

The last 2 tools are "spoons" used to adjust.
This job can be done with pliers and screw drivers but is is a lot harder.

Also wear goggles. When you are removing the drum, check the condition of the outer wheel bearings and grease it.
Do one side at a time so you can refer to the other side.

This is not too bad of a job but take your time and be careful.......Print Dad
