Help with the 9 inch Lincolin Versailles brakes.

I have a 9 inch Versailles rear in my 80 malibu,but the emergency brake has not been used in over 5 years,so the brakes are now out of adjustment( I checked the master cylinder,and the fluid was almost gone).
What I was wondering if I am able to pull the calipers and adjust them,or do I need to get rebuilt ones,and start over?

Your post is kind of misleading. When you say calipers, that tells us that you have disk brakes on the rear. Those are not adjustable. If you have drum brakes, you have wheel cylinders, not calipers.
I try not to rebuild anything related to the braking system anymore. It's much less troublesome and sometimes cheaper to just buy new parts and replace them, even the drums or rotors.
