1941 Ford pickup brakes

I took off the stock front drums and shoes, cleaned everything and put them back together, but now the brakes lock up. Never had his happen before. I can back the truck without a problem, but they lockup going forward. Is it possible the lower eccentric washer is not seated on a front drum or maybe the eccentric is worn? Other thoughts are appreciated before I take things apart again.

If it locks up going forward thye shoes or adjusters are not installed correctly, the long shoe goes towards the front, here's a diagram from Vanpelt , http://www.vanpeltsales.com/FH_web/F...r_1939to42.jpg
