The smaller spring goes under the lower anchor and connects at the red arrows. The larger double spring goes right under the wheel cylinder to retract the shoes. Once they're fully retracted that adjuster lever should be up higher so it can turn the adjuster. If it isn't, the adjuster link is turned around.
You can avoid this problem by just taking one side apart so you have the other one to look at.
As a side note, The Shadow / Sundance are really tough, dandy little cars. They will really protect you in a crash. I'd love to find a nice rust-free one.
