I have replaced the wheel cylinder and the brake shoes but when I go to put the drum back on it won't go on. I have tried switching the shoes. Adjusting it all the way. But it still won't go back on.

Parking brake has to be fully relaxed. And it helps to remove any raised lip that is on drum inner edge where it first meets shoes when pushing on.

Sumptin aint right? Which is why I always do 1 side at a time to compare in case I have trouble. Is the other side available as working/fitting to look at compare?
