Hi, I just changed the rear brake shoes, drums and springs and since then there is a friction noise. I already have 270kms and the noise is not going away (I hoped that after a couple hundred kms it will stop making noise). Is this normal? Will it go away, or I did something wrong? Thanks, Chris
Jack up the rear wheel and spin it, do this with the other wheels chocked for safety, and listen for any rubbing sound, do this with both rear wheels and if one is bad then remove the drum again to check if the retainer has come off of the brake lining, hope this helps you.

To get a "ball-Park" adjustment, just turn the adjustment mechanism (with drum removed) 'till you can just put the drum back on and it turns without binding. Your self-adjusters will finish the job for you as you drive. Worst thing you can do is set initial adjustment too tight as that will burn the shoes before they get a chance to properly break in. Doing it how I said, will avoid that.
