Thanx.... i'll post the rest of the pics in the project section.
its going to be a rat driver for a while but it will be DRIVEN...
the good... fresh 318, cammed, hedders, 3 on the tree.. finishing up with 3:91's.. the bad, the roofs on its way out from the inside out.. so thats gotta be dealt with first along with hunting down weather stripping... but truthfully... luv it just as it is... Twisted Evil

Your buddy has some nice vans there.

It's been mentioned before here.
You need to cut away the swedge on the brake drum first, then press out the studs from the hub. Trying to press out the studs through the hub and drum will bend the hub and render the drum useless...
One guy mentioned using a hole saw to reach down around the stud.
