Dually Brakes

Hi,
I have a friend who has aquired a 1984 Nissan 720 Motor Home with a Funcraft of Cambridge, Ontario body on it.
We are trying to remove the rear brake drums on the dually rear axle and are looking for two answers.
1. How do you remove the dually brake drums.
2/ Who was the manufacturer of the axel,was it Nissan or another company?
I look forward to your replies and many thanks in advance.

Is it like this one?

And remember, brake dust causes cancer in some states. Do not use air to clean in ANY state. Use brake cleaner.

Photos would help answer your question. Since it has dual rear wheels, most likely you may have to pull the axles to get at the large nuts for the bearings and pull hub and drum together. Generally there are two types of brake drums, outboard type, which will slide off the hub, and inboard type where the hub and drum come off together.

In many cases these small pickup motorhomes either were fitted with dual wheel axles by the coach builder or many were homebrew installations done after the coach was built. Some even took two rims and welded them together to fit the standard Toyota axle.

I Googled rear axle identification by shape and selected images and got a zillion hits for charts showing the rear covers of most common rear axles.
