Played with the rear brake adjusters a little today because the car was pulling left a little when braking ('84 Elky with standard drum rear brakes). It looked like the right side self-adjuster arm was not engaging the adjuster wheel the way the left one was -- it sat a little too far out. So I bent the arm inward just a little so it meets the adjuster wheel the way the left one does. Wear on the brake shoes looked about the same on both sides. We'll see if that's the solution. It felt straighter on the way home.

Anything else to watch for?

When the adjuster arm is not hitting the wheel the spring is usually on backwards. Make sure the spring is not touching the wheel either.
