Default 2006 Club Car Drum problem..UPDATE

I need to check my brakes. The drum is loose but won't come off, How can I back off the adjuster so the drum clears the shoes? On the backside bottom of the assembly I pulled back the rubber dust cover, which in in the same position as the adjuster, there is a nut, is that how to back off the adjustment?
I tried turning it a little in both directions with no help, it seems to tighten up when moved in both directions.
Thank you for any help.

I finially got off the pot and have decided rather than repair the drum brakes I'll update to Disc rear brakes.
Just ordered the kit from " Cart Parts Plus ", When I start I'll udate on my progress. I'll also do pics to post here. Right now I need to read up on pulling the axles as I've never done this before. I want to have all the old stuff off by the time I get the new stuff. Wish me luck.

If you read thru the brake section in that service manual I sent your way, it will show you where the snap ring is located that needs to be removed in order to pull the axles . . . you will need a good set of 90 degree snap ring pliers . .

Finally finished except for one small detail which I'm hoping I'll get some feedback from someone. Tomorrow I will get in touch with Cart Parts Plus to see what they have to say about it.
Anyway the one hitch I ran into was the Caliper mounting bolt heads were scrapping on the inside of the wheel, it sounded wrose than it turned out. My resolution was to add washers onto each stud to give me the clearance I needed so this would not happen.
Other than that it was a lot easier than I had hoped for. I had some problem finding a pair of 90 degree Snap Ring Pliers, I wound up getting a mechanic from one of the local Cart Shops to come by and take care of the Snap Rings so I could remove the old brake assemblies.($20.00)

I'm posting some photos if anyhone is interested.

Looks nice . . as for the stud length, I would be asking Cart Parts Plus . . should have a full nut on the studs and you are short the thickness of the washers . . . the final pic you posted shows cart with chrome wheels . . are you having the same problem with bolt heads rubbing on inside of them also? If only "minor" rubbing and it does not prevent wheel from freely turning, can you try different type of bolt (shoulder/stripper bolt) that has a shallower head . . or grind down the head on the bolts you currently are using to provide the necessary clearance? . . .
