arai drum brake removal

Posted By: phil hammond

how do i remove the drum brake, should i break a spoke(s) on the rear, nearside, hub without carrying a huge 41mm spanner?
i've tried sheldon brown's trick; drag brake lever on, wheel tandem backwards-- drum unscrews itself...nothing! i even tried disassembling the drum brake, lightly greasing the threads, reassembling and trying the 'trick' again....still nothing!!!
surely someone, at sometime has had to remove one at the roadside miles from anywhere!!!!
