@Rockhead,
Just from the question, it's possible the shoes have worn a groove in the shoes. If so, the brakes would need to be manually deadjusted so the shoes are smaller than the drums.

Yep. Need more information.

@Michael8,
back the adjusters off, and give then a good whack with a soft hammer.

from there it depends...

you'd think as much as I see chinese instructions, I would get better at deciphering them, but...

there is something kinda ironic about this, I'm certain of it.

@dadpad,
Somethin's wrong. There was a really big post in what I believe were Chinese ideographs. It's gone, and that's what Rockhead was responding to. Maybe there was some heineous Chinese spam tucked away in there.
