Expert Reply:

Getting the Nev-r-adjust assembly initially set can be a bit challenging.

I would recommend bolting the assembly in place and rotating the adjuster from the front before installing the hub. You can keep moving the shoes outward, until you can barely slip the drum into place. This will get you pretty close to the initial adjustment needed. If you need to make an additional fine adjustment one way or the other, you can force your brake adjustment tool in from behind the assembly past the adjustment bracket enough to adjust a click or so at a time.

After the initial adjustment, the brakes will continually keep themselves adjusted, beginning immediately.
