Answer 1
Loosen the brake line at the wheel cylinder. Make sure you have something to catch the expelled fluid. Tighten the line after you push the shoess together. Goodluck -
Answer 2
you may have to repl wheel cyl, then tend to leak after this happens -

Also check the parking brake adjustment . If it's a self-adjusting parking brake you will need to find out the method to reset it or it will still be difficult to install drums -
