I think you must be assembling it incorrectly. Orienting the shoes incorrectly for leading and trailing, or using the wrong hole in the shoe. Because I have never had one of those malfunction in any car that I can recall.

Or, I know different brake systems use different lengths for the pin (87) — are you sure you are using the right ones?

> Part 87 goes through the hub, through the brake shoe, through 85 (spring) and through 86.  Part 87 has a T shaped top that goes through a slot in 86, then you turn it and it is supposed to hold.  Right rear, one brake shoe, part 87 pulls through part 86 and allows the brake shoe (82) to constantly run against the hub (90).
