Take your cables off of it first... and try to rock that holder back n forth. Sometimes that will free up your shoes and allow you to pull the drum off.
There's a bolt on the bottom of that holder which keeps it on that spliney thing (that bolt rests in a groove on it). (Someone help me out with the name of that!! LOL!!!)
Anyways, the holder/lever should just slide off the spliney thing. I put anti-sieze grease on mine so I didn't have any problems when I had to take it back apart. (always had problems with drum brakes)
The drum SHOULD come off especially if you rock that lever back n forths a few times. If not, you can take a piece of wood and hit the end of the spliney thing and it SHOULD pop free.
