I changed the brakes, both wheel cylinders, Both rear hoses and adjusters. The passenger side keeps adjusting out until it over heats. Everything is new on both sides.

When I inspected the brakes before changing them the passenger side brakes were down to the steel frame of the brake shoe and the drivers side was OK. I don't know why it keeps adjusting out now that I have replaced everything?

Check the emergency brake cable. I bet it is frozen keeping the shoes tight against the drum

Thank you for your reply, I forgot to say the emergency brake cable is working ok. It seems to set and release well.

It does not take much for it to drag and cause this issue. It is very common for that to happen
