Question

ok guys, heres the deal, my neighbor's ford [email protected]$$ needed new breaks. he tried to adjust that self adjusting screw so that the drum could slide off, ofcourse he turned the screww the wrong way and now the drum is seased to the breaks. now he wants to put the good'ol heat wrench to the drum, i think thats a bad idea, how else can we go about this without causing a major brake fluid fire, thanks

Simply use another tool to push back the adjuster lever, and turn it the other way.
