rear brakes on 2001 Toyota Echo

having trouble getting the drum on. brakes are adjusted all the way in. I compared to other side and everything is correct?

Could the hand brake be slightly on? Is the adjuster star wheel retracted ? The adjuster should not need to be fully retracted for the drum to fit on unless the brake lings are to thick or the brake drum itself has a wear ridge in it that is unacceptable.
