Question Bedford TK rear axle brake drum-hub removal

Hi Folks,
I beleive I have the rear axle of a Bedford TK truck welded onto the chassis of my boat trailer. As the trailer has been standing for over a year, the brake drum-hub have seized onto the brake pads. I have removed the drive shaft, 2 x castle nuts and castle washer. However, I cannot move the brake drum-hub assembly. I've tried some gentle brute force (crow bar through wheel bolts and sledge hammer taps). No movement. I noticed two rubber grommets on the back side of the brake drum dust cover. On opening it seems to reveal a view of the brake drum inner edge + brake pad side profile. My question: Can I insert a sturdy cold chisel or drift into these holes, rest on the brake drum edge and use a hefty hammer to drift the brake drum and hub assembly off the axle stub? Or do you recommend another method?
Looking forward to your advice!

Smile Succss - Hub removed

Hi Folks,
Success! Wheel hub removed with: 1) Sledge hammer + long lever to gain rotation; 2) Wheel puller rented for 10 for Phelan's Tool Hire (Dungarvan); 3) Reverse bolted the half axle to wiggle the hub off.
Cheers,
Simon
