Default Rear brakes

I have a 2006 ram 1500 w/ Hemi (sport) I have searched and everyone says to use a bfh. I need to remove rear brake drums. People have said that it helps to loosen parking brake adjustment. I pulled out the rubber plug and shined a flashlight in the hole. I cant see a star adjustment wheel. I have sprayed everything with PB Blaster, but this is getting annoying. Any help would be appreciated. I just don't want to damage the parking brake shoes, as I don't plan on replacing them.

Thanks

I found the star nut and loosened the e brake some. That rotor is rally on there. I have a puller on it and it wont budge. I may have to put it back together and take it somewhere.

I will keep updating my progress incase anyone has questions of their own down the road. Ok finally got the rotor off. Puller did the trick.

Puller was the key. Second side to a total of about an hour after fumbling through the first side for 3 hours. All is well.
