Is it just one forward shoe on one side or both sides?

How tight are you emergency brake cables?....they may be holding them out a little.

Just one shoe

Its only the front shoe on both sides.I am not running a emergency brake.The ford brakes has a speader bar between both shoes for the emergency brake.If this bar is missing would that cause the shoes from not returing?I dont know if i have the right spings in the right spots.does anyone know if there is a good diagram showing the sring layout?I have two yellow springs on top and one blue on the bottom. Hope you can help.

This is an assembly illustration of a FORD rear drum brake assembly. This is for self-adjusting. It has to be assembled in this fashion to work correctly.

Do you know about what year the assembly is off of? There may also be an additional spring that runs between the bottom of the shoes to keep the adjuster in place.
