Remove wear ridge if not already done.

use lever to adjust shoes to 'just fit' inside drum.

Assuming actuators are new/perfect, the robert is your mother's brother.

Cheers

Can't remember where I heard it but stick it into reverse, get up some speed then slam on the anchors. This seems to throw out the shoes in some way. My Cinque failed the MOT on a poor hand brake last year. Garage did as above, passed MOT.
