      Mine didn't have Screws in it, it just came off after i took the wheel off and used a little man power to get it off because it was stuck, i used a rubber hammer to tap it off

      Not that there a real bad to have them on, they do help keep the drum in oneplace so the pads wear more even. If you put a very light dab of
      Ant -sizes on the screws and just tighten them till snuggive them 1/8 turn that it. That way it's easy get them off thenext time. Without the screws there a chance it could be offset. When tighten up tires. Make chance the tire not straightwith the stub axel.

      I have some pictures. I will post one below. I got everything back together. However I am not completely sure of all the details. I don't think the automatic adjuster is working right. The official shop manual sucks. There is no way to adjust the pads from the back with the hub on the assembly.

      Here is one of the pictures I took of the adjuster.

      Right now everything is super soft. I know I need to adjust it and I at lost on how to do it. My only solution is to do it manually with the hub off.

      You can adjust the shoes out a little with the drum off. Just leave them just loose enough to still be able to slide the drums on. Then drive backwards sort of fast and pull the emergency brake. A few times of this and your rear brakes should be nice and tight. It works for me anyway.

      PS - If you have installed new brakes shoes you will need to first lift the center console cover around the e-brake and back off all the way on the adjustment there. Do this before adjusting anything else.

      Spinning the star wheel on the brake adjuster doesn't move the brake shoes at all?

      I can spin the star adjuster. I just can't get the auto-adjuster to work by driving backwards and applying the brake. Once I get home from work. I am going to get in the assembly and check everything again. I bleed the back brakes and I want to bleed the front brakes to cycle the old fluid and make sure there are no more bubbles. I had the brake lines open for a couple of weeks while I replaced the old axle beam.

      I took the e-brake cover off and I found something interesting, the adjustment nut is already taken up all the way. Should I go ahead and still back it off?
