SOURCE: back drum brakes

Remove the rubber plug at the back of the backing plate. Take a brake adjusting tool or screw driver through the hole and turn(pry) the brake adjuster to back off the brake shoes. There is a ridge worn in to the brake drum and that is keeping the brake drum on, even if you can wiggle it.

Dodge dakota pickups won't run. cam sensor or pickup sensor?

I would need to know what year and engine size you have.
If you know for a fact you have no spark to the plugs, it could be a relay, a faulty coil, or a sensor. You would check for voltage and a ground signal at the coil first.
