Take off the grease cap 1st. Then remove the cotter pin, nut, washer, & outside wheel bearing. Rotor will then slip off.
you are aware, this is the rear rotor he is asking about. Doesnt work that way anonymous

"How do you get the front brake rotor off when rusted & a sludge hammer does not work?" The REAR? Where did you get that?

This is the Hub for single rear wheels http://www.napaonline.com/Search/MultiImagePopup.aspx?ImageIndex=0&A=NB_4886527_0148368506&An=599001+599999+102000+109999+50028+59999+2028058+2999999+12502 and this is the Hub for Dual rear wheels http://www.napaonline.com/Search/MultiImagePopup.aspx?ImageIndex=0&A=NB_4886530_0148368510&An=599001+599999+102000+109999+50028+59999+2028058+2999999+12502 Doesn't look like the rotor separates from the Hub assembly

Use a bigger hammer :) an 8lb sledge with about 3-4 feet handle and wack away. If you have access to an pneumatic air hammer i suggest using the ball tip in between the studs and then use a hammer.
