Default Rear brakes ‘40

Rear brakes were rubbing. Anyone see a known issue? Just this side, and they look like they were assembled right

Dave, did you adjust the lower eccentric pivots?

I had the same problem on both sides in the rear. Went with the Lincolns up front. Adjusted the rears for lightest drag and ignored other methods. Maybe later I will do Lincolns on the back too but they are high $$$. In the meantime they seam to be doing ok but I sure don't like them.
