Default Rear brakes on '42 pickup

My right rear brake is tight, I had noticed this when towing it into the driveway to do the brakes, I'd assumed it was either a issues with a stuck wheel cylinder, or the ebrake cable had been pulled and froze up.

After rebuilding the wheel cylinders, the drum when on pretty hard...in a hurry to bleed the brakes, I disregarded it.

So, after getting the clutch freed up today (thanks again rotorwrench!) I pulled the drum again and there is plenty of slack in the ebrake cable.

I turned the upper adjusting bolts Counter clockwise with no effect...my lower anchor pins have no adjustments that I can see or tell of, unless it's behind the brake shoes where the anchor at the bottom?

I could post a pic if needed, finally found my camera cord.

Well heck...got it figured out..I'd made a poor assumption based on the incorrect procedure for what I needed...I started fiddling with the adjuster and see it rotates to loosen, then tighten-in the same direction...light came on and have it all better now
