loose rear drive shaft bolt at the brake drum

One of my rear drive shaft bolts is loose and I can't seem to get it to tighten, it just spins in the e-brake drum.
Any ideas short of pulling the drum off?
Thanks

With the drive shaft off it is really easy to pull off the drum. The adjustor bolt is at the bottom forward side. You might just need a new bolt.

Not good ideas.

You could weld it.

I warned you.

Pull the driveshaft(4 bolts). Remove drum(1 screw). Remove flange(1 nut). Remove large c-clip and replace cross threaded bolt. TADA!!! Reassemble and you're done.

Yep, do it right or don't do it at all.

So other than the 4 bolts and nuts, are there any other parts I need to replace?

Replacing the drum brake with an X-Brake is a good idea.
