    Hi guys,
    For the fun of it I had the wheels and drums off the rear end of Pompi and noticed on the drivers side wheel the lower half of the rear most pad (essentially lower left quadrant looking at the hub) had no wear on it at all. It actually felt rough - much rougher than a usual pad from memory.
    Is this just a matter of fiddling with the left side star adjuster to get the rest of the pad in contact with the drum or could there be something else to look at?
    Cheers

    Yes x 2.....
    Just means the shoes need adjusting outwards.
    Cheers,

    Pull the adjusters out and clean them to ensure free movement.
    Ensure all springs etc are correctly fitted.
    Don't stand on brake pedal while brake drum off , you can pop the wheel cylinder.
