I did get the front ones off - will post pictures of the cylinders for YOU ALL to potentially identify.


use a 3-5 pound heavy hammer. pound, not tap, POUND on the 'corners' of the drum i.e north, south, east, west. repeat until drum 'pops' off. if it doesn't budge then u are not pounding hard enough. if u use a puller like a slide hammer u will need to get an industrial size heavy duty model, not those cheapy versions at checkers or autozone. also, be sure the hand brake is released before doing this

Corners? Is this like sending me to a round barn and telling me to take a leak in the corner?  LOL 
Thanks, I'll continue pounding away.
Is the pictured wheel cylinder identifiable (ie - from a newer model Datsun)?
ThanksMuch,

Lol!  Make sure the parking brake isn't locked or hung on the lip of the drum, make sure the adjuster screw isn't putting tension on the shoes against the drum.  Try hitting the "shoulder" like this, 12, 6, 12, 6, 3, 9, 3, 9.  Have you gotten it to move at all?  If so does it feel like it's hung or something is pulling it back after you tug on it?

Thanks EZ, I have an online copy of the 320 manual and parts catalog. Just haven't determined if its pertinent to the '60 PLG221. 
ThanksMuch,
