I think you might be right. I was able to rip apart an old wheel that was also seized up and the friction plate was separated from the brake pad.

So... I probably don't want to put it into my contraption and heat it because that could potentially make it worse.

I'll try just heating it first and go from there.

If all else fails, I'll just have to cut off the brake assembly and find a new one.
