    Hello I have a payloader ha, just redone brakes shoes new cylinders. The left side drum went on really hard and now it barely turns/ hangs up. There does not appear to be any adjustment to the brakes, the drums were turned, it’s difficult to figure out why it’s catching. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Any chance of some pictures showing the brakes, not sure of the type of brakes they had but don't think I ever say a brake system that did not have some kind of adjustment for wear. May not be obvious but should be some type of adjustment!

    Any chance of a picture that shows the back side of the backing plate? Or from the front with shoes removed?

    Some brakes of that vintage have cams in the backing plate that you use to adjust them.

    One example is the following:

    I cut out the references to a different brake to avoid confusion, that is what the red boxes are for.

    KSHansen, I cannot thank you enough! That's exactly what I needed. I'll give it a try this afternoon afterwork.

    thanks again!
