You adjust the brakes by turning that star shaped thing. There is a little rubber plug that you remove on the backing plate, so you can do it with the drum on. Turn it until it is just starting to rub when you spin the drum.

Another thing to look at, is your rubber brake hoses may be old and are deteriorating causing the flow through them to be uneven. More common than you would think.
