Default Club car ds. Brake adjustment

I am wondering any tips to adjusting brakes on my ds. I have cleaned the brake shoes drums and all other components well. I Have not been able to properly adjust the brakes so it stops right. The brakes will only slow you down. Wondering what the proper adjustment procedure is or if I need new brake components.?

Is the adjuster bolt a square ended bolt cover with a rubber cover?

Yes definitely worked. Went to tight, felt like they were hanging up, but loosened them up and seem to be much better. Thanks a lot.
