Bottom line you got to get the drum off. Could be a failed shoe binding up? broken spring or retainer? If opening the bleed did not release it, its not a dirty master cyl etc.
You may check out but you will never leave

My guess is that it was parked with the micro lock on for a while and the hinge part of the shoe rusted together so they arent returning when the pressure is off

Is it going to cause any damage to drive it around some and hope that it works loose?
How about driving it untill the pads wear out enough?

So I got it apart. It seems to just be missing the return spring. The  cylinder seemed a little sticky. Those two and some brake clean should get me back together.

Does anyone know if that drum brake setup is from  any common truck? Id rather go to my local gut to get it than call Nash and wait for it to ship, and pay shipping...

Hey Sunrise farms congrats on the 208,that is a really nice machine.The brakes are a sore point ,rarely do they work properly.In order to get the brake drum off you will probally have to back the shoes off,the shoes usually wear a groove in the drum and makes it impossible to get it apart.There are nuts on the backing plate which work as a cam system to move the shoes out against the drum for adjustment,release those and you drum should come off.Check to see if there is any oil on the shoes,if so replace the oil seal.If the shoes are not sticking upon operation then I think your problem may be in your master cylinder or a kinked line.Good luck.
