Some cars have auto ajust but in some cars you need a screw driver to turn a sprocketwheel throug the brake backplate.

Testimonial: "thanks for suggestion but I need to get shoes closer to drum&adjust,then,auto adjust can take over. Can't turn sprocketwheel because the brake-wheel cyl.hydraulic line is in the way for even a screwdriver."

There should be a rubber insert in the back of the wheel assembely,take it out and you can adjust the brake tighter or looser by turning the adjusting wheel

Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Know how you feel I've been there! Although your friend can't turn it dosent meen you have a good brake. so its not the reason it is jacked up that you have a brake It's stopping it but not enough when you are driving. Did you adjust them up after you changed the shoe's. If you did then they are just not bedded in.You will know this by pulling the hand brake when its moving it should slide the back wheel's. If the hand brake does'nt work properly then drive it with the handbrake pulled up until you hear the engine rev's go down. Let the handbrake off and ter the foot brake. You should have brake's. Hope this help's it works for me.
