could be adjusted too tight, emergency brake cable may be seized and not allowing the shoes to seat correctly or the drum is out of round and needs to be resurfaced.

I dont think its the emergency brake. I checked it and it seems to be working fine. Could it really be the drum? It is old and rusty replaced every thing but them.
