After you put it all back together did you drive the car in reverse then apply park brake? If not give this a try, just use your hand park to stop the car, these should fix the problem,Let me know how you made out.

Seems like your rear brakes are staying stuck in locked position when you release the E-brake. Try to adjust the e-brake from under the car first. If that does not work then remove the rear drum, and there is a adjustment bolts. Turn it a few turns put back on the drum and try again.

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

There is an allen key bolt located on top of the actual pedal under the dash board, as you turn it you will see the pedal move.

Hi tim to adjust the parking brake shoe is take off one wheel bolt and turn it untill you see the parking brake ajuster ( look like a gear) use torch and flat screw driver. first tight the adjuster untill you cant turn the wheel then undo it for atleast 8 notches
