I'm having a heck of a time getting the rotors off. I see that there is a single threaded hole in the rotor. How hard can you beat the thing it is stuck. I had the caliper off and removed the hub nut. Would a torch help or is there a emergency brake inside the hub cavity?:-\

you can thread a bolt into that hole to pop it off. I think it's M10x1.25.

WAIT! As suggested above, you need to back of the e-brake.

There's an access hole in the backing plate. Small flat blade screwdriver, lots of light in there, and then you should be able to see and turn the adjuster so the brake shoes back off.

Yes, the e-brake is an internal drum setup.
