    Make sure the shoe adjuster is turned all the way in and the parking brake is not pulling on the brake mechanism.

    It's hard to describe, but it is the part that fits between the shoes at the top. It has a toothed gear on it, this needs to be adjusted so the shoes are pulled inward as much as possible. Look at the mechanism and you'll need to figure it out what makes the adjuster contract.
