THe Fo4 manual speaks of Clockwise (or counterclockwise). don't have the manual in front of me.

That isn't clear to me and I've had a prolem in the past where I loosen the screw enough that the tail of the shoe dragged and I though I was getting contact.

Should I insert the tool in the left wheel adjuster sprocket and
A) drive the handle of the adjuster toward the axle?

Or

B) drive the handle toward the back of the tractor (away from the axle?

Do I do the same or the opposite for the right wheel? (In other word do thaey use the same adjustor , or is one Right hand thread and one left hand thread like my 69 Bronco with automatic adjustors that work when you hit brakes while in reverse)

Thanks for saving me from pulling both drums to get this answer!

Brake Adjustment

If you have the old style brake adjustment, slot in back of Brake drum, you push your toll towards the axel. Use a good stout screwdriver about an 8" blade, if you use anything smaller you'l crack your knuckles on the axel housing. Another way to check to see if your going in the right direction make some adjustment, if your brake pedal height comes up your going the right direction.
