Post 1983 Honda 200E rear brake drum- please help!!

My father-in-law recently purchased a 1993 Honda 200E ATC. The foot brake is loose, and I've noticed that the rear brake 'arm' on the rear axle housing is frozen. Now I took off the right tire, the first 'dust cover', and both axle blots, but I cannot seem to get the darn brake drum off for the life of me!!!! There's a washer, as well as a round 'tube of some sort that I got off as well, cleaned up the area between the drum and axle, but cannot see a 'spring clip' or anything of any sorts that is keeping the drum on!!!!
Can anyone please help!!!!!????! Is there a certain tool I need to get what needs to come off for the brake drum to get removed?( I noticed that there's a washer type of thing that's inbetween the drum and axle, has a few holes in it, but doesn't expand or contract to get it off!).
Any ideas would greatly help and be appreciated!!
Can email me at bdzajackowski@aol.com

If the rear brake arm is seized you will have trouble getting the drum off , you may have to tap the brake arm back with a hammer to release any pressure off the shoes/drum ..

I also will email you the brake section from the 1982-83 ATC200E PDF shop manual ..
