Did the shoes touch the drums before everything was changed? If so you can put the old shoes back on and if they touch then you have the wrong size shoes, if they still don't touch, then you have the wrong size cylinders. Or worst case scenario, they are both the wrong size!
Regretfully many pattern parts are not to origional dimensions, and the issue of brake adjustment has come up before. If you find that your parts are nopt quite correct then return them to the supplier and insist on the top quality original spec items.
Don't know, but would have expected a deep groove. However I have riveted a 3mm piece of steel onto the underside of the adjusters, which seems to have sorted it for now, and I will try to identify the problem for the future.
hmmm... they may stay in position on the cylinders, a safer way, is to put a stroke of weld with a mig onto the end of the brake shoe to make it longer,and file to profile, but maybe no mig good luck.
