These rear brakes have never been replaced and as I just rep; aced the front pads I decided to replace the rear as well. The knockouts were still in the backing plates. After knocking them out, I started turning the adjuster, but apparently moving the shoes out onto the drums and went to far, for when I tried to reverse the direction I couldn't get the adjuster to turn in the opposite direction. The tangs on the adjusters are so small it is hard to get the brake spoon to stay behind it with enough pressure to rotate it. Can I use a blunt tool and tap on the bottom most tang and see if I can get it to move that way or do you have a different method to try?
