you can adjust the shoes in the back by adjusting #7


or in the front by adjusting #11

first you release the tension at the parking brake handle.

Then you adjust the shoes using #7 the adjuster. You allow for a slight amount of drag while turning the disc. Then you tighten the cable at the parking brake handle if needed. Test each side with the wheels off the ground, before finishing off.
