Emergency Brake Dragging?

Hello,

95 Exp 119k 4WD
Replaced rear rotors/shoes last week. Rust must have flaked off and
jammed between pad and rotor, as shoes were no where near to the
rivets, yet rotor was scored.

Emergency shoes not stuck as wheels turned easily. After lots of
hammer hits to rotor to release it, I tried to put on new rotors. I
turned the ebrake star wheel until the threaded assembly contraced as
far as possible, and showed no threads visible. Even after this,
ebrake pads seem to be expanded too much to get the rotors on easily.
Haynes manual gave little info. Did I turn the star wheel the correct
direction?

Old rotor wasn't grooved from ebrake pads, so there was no lip for them
to stick on. They were just froze to axle hub with rust. Applied
anti-seize to hub before new rotor was installed Both ebrake levers at
axles seem to work fine. They swing about 1/2" between on/off at the
ends where the cable loop attaches. Is there an adjustment at the
pedal in the inside ebrake lever to loosen it? Ebrake pads seem to
drag as truck won't easily roll down a small slope in neutral and
requires a little bit more throttle to get it moving.

Thanks,
Ted

There is no adjustment at the pedal assembly or the cable itself,
