One of the things that the old mechanic taught me is to set the shoes. Put the drum on and adjust the shoes out against the drum snugly so the adjuster gets hard to move. This will put the shoes out evenly with the drum, then back them off until they just barely drag somewhere on the rotation. This means that they will only touch in one place not the entire rotation.... Now the shoes are in the proper position .......I rarely hear anyone mention this anymore? Maybe it will help?

Dog also he states when he tightens the wheel it drags.
Check the shoes to the old ones? are the new ones wider?
