Thanks for all the suggestions. I went to swap drums with the other side and saw that the emergency brake actuator was slightly more retractedcompared tothe problem side. I tried to push the problem side back manually. No luck. Ended up removing the seats and floor to slacken the brake cable. Problem solved.

Had my brakes relined. Three wheels went back together with no problem. Could not get the drum over the shoes on the fourth wheel (left rear). Everything seated properly; brake adjusters turned all the way in. My thinking is to grind down a bit of the heel of the shoe to bring it in some more. I shouldstill have good spring tension. Any other options?

thanks,
