So....on an 86, once the rear calipers are removed and the parking brake is released, is the only thing left holding the rotors on the 2 philips screws?
If so what's the best way to pursade a stuck on rotor to come off?

Thanks

yes, by design, the screws are holding it on.

BUT . . .

the hat could be rusted to the hub, and the P-brake shoes could have worn down into the drum surface, leaving a ridge around the outside.

i used a large gear puller gripping the outside of the disc, and pushing on the hub. then a BFH (big freakin' hammer) to shock it while the puller is applying force to the assembly. seems a little Primative Pete, but it worked for me, and didn't seem to hurt the disc.
