the most likely cause is that one of the hydraulic lines to the non-functioning rear brakes is bent, kinked or restricted. There is a chance that a rubber line is deteriorated on the inside blocking fluid to the wheel cylinder.

first thing to do is to open the bleeder valve at the wheel that doesn't work and have someone press on the brake pedal. if no fluid comes out then you need to work your way back towards the master cylinder and open the fittings until you have brake fluid come out. the point between where there is no fluid and where there is would be where the restriction is.

if you have fluid coming out of the bleeder valve then the wheel cylinder is the problem. Peel back the cups on the ends of the wheel cylinder and see if there is brake fluid underneath them. that would be a sure sign of a leaking cylinder.

the wheel cylinders would be the cause if there is fluid coming out of the bleeder assuming the brake shoes don't move at all. if the brake shoes move, the brake hydraulic system would be good but the brakes would be way out of adjustment.

I think you're going to find the problem is hydraulic and either due to a bent or deteriorated line or a bad wheel cylinder.

hope that helps

Well, for starters it's not a good idea to operate the brakes with the drums off..
