Before I whack away on drum like I had
to on front drums, thought I'd check with
you guys first. Shouldn't this just come
off same as front ? That's what FSM says.

Looks to be a captive drum, you will have to remove the axle, then the hub/drum assembly. Hub lock nut requires special socket to remove, if you're lucky it maybe the same as front hubs on 4 wheel drive's and can be bought or even borrowed from one the chain parts stores.

That one needs to come off hub and all as one assembly, hub, drum, bearings and all. Now please tell me that there's a jack stand involved somewhere in this project, and you're not supporting that big truck with nothing but that Mickey Mouse toy jack!

There is no weight on the 'disney' jack.
It does the lifting job (only). I'm a glutton for
punishment. Plan to get a nice floor jack
someday.
So. I see in the manual about removing all that
like a big mess - is this still a  ¾ ton rear ?
I don't experience in 'larger' trucks, but this
looks to me like one could put duellies there.

I believe the same axle and hub was used (with a bigger brake drum) for 1 ton dual wheel setups. I had a 1959 3800 flat bed truck with the same basic rear axle and 14" brake drums.

I suppose I'll wait until all apart to see
shoe size, but I was able to pickup front
2.8" x 11" shoes - at Autozone.
I know back shoes in sad shape, since
front were hardly worn.

Typically front shoes or pads wear more than rears, unless something is really messed up.

I guess it is on the red 60 or 61 truck in the other pictures? The rear cover looks like a Eaton HO52/72 axle. I agree with Lincoln that it looks like a dually hub. You sure the truck is not a C30 (1-ton)? I think Chevy still had the HD 3/4-ton option with rear duals at that time. Good luck.

" Hub lock nut requires special socket to remove "
.
If I read manual correctly, the tool is J-2222.
When I google it, I see a few different styles
for the same #. Anyone have a good picture
and/or location to buy one ?
I plan to work on this a long time, so I might
as well buy the thing.
.
edit: oh, VIN says it is definitely ¾ ton Platform
built in K C .

edit : never mind, bought tool at oreilly - $10.99
Hub off in 5 min. y e a !

(continuing my own thread...)
So, all cleaned - new shoes.
Greased bearings. (I know, oil will eventually coat them again)
B u t , there is only about 1" of room to insert tool
to adjust star wheel to expand shoes to useful point.
I am probably going to heat/bend an old screwdriver ;
is this the usual plan ?
Or is there a perfect little tool for this I haven't found ?
.
( also picked up a harborfreight floor jack on sale -
apparently made in same factory as Snap-On )
