He needs to get the drums off, which is often the hard part, at least for me.
Normally, you would reach in with the adjusting spoon to turn the star wheel to loosen the adjuster. Sometimes you also have to reach in with a small screwdriver to push the ratchet off the wheel as the same time. If old a rusty, it can be a real adventure. I once had to cut the brake drum to get it off.
I think on Dodges the spoon would be moved up to loosen, but it has been a long time, so not certain. The ratchet latch is usually on the inside of the wheel, so that makes sense.
