Default Rear brake drum removal


I am in the process of putting a lovely 1967 131 Amazon back on the road after it lying dormant in a barn for 25 years. After various bits of work and parts replacements, have got it started and am overhauling the brakes. So far so good.

However, the LH rear brake drum won't budge. Have used two types of puller on it, the last being a hydraulic one but with absolutely no sign of it dislodging at all and by the looks of it the puller has now damaged the end of the half shaft it was pushing against.... and still it won't come off.

Anyone have any ideas for what to do next to remove - have also tried heat but to no avail. Last resort to oxy cut it off??? Am at a very frustrating halt in proceedings, any ideas very gratefully received - thank you!
