Default MPV R brakes - drum screws?

Replaced fr disk, easy, then on to replace rear drum shoes on2002 MPV, but rotors wont budge. It spins free, so dont think adjuster is binding, the parking brake is off, but even after applying penetraing oil and heating up with torch, nothing doing. Do the two brass screws (which also wont budge) retain the drum housing? Any advice appreciated!!

A hammer impact usually does the trick.
Or drill them out and replace with new ones... this time using some Anti-Seize to keep them from becoming too friendly with each other.

Thanks, I'll give it a try, have never seen screws that retain a brake drum like that. usually I just wiggle it out with a few well placed mallet whacks from the backside.

They used to be fairly common andoften a bit of a problem to remove. Hence the hand impact w/phillips heads adapter.
