There are lots of brake adjusting tools on the market. I have several, from a Mac to a Harbor Freight to a couple homemade/ bent to work on an oddball. An important tip: film of grease on the contact points on the backing plates where the shoes rest, and also take your adjusters apart, clean and lube the pin/ swivels and make sure the spring washers are in place. You want that thing to turn really free for adjusting up. Also if you can reach in the corner with a small screwdriver/ punch etc. and hold the adjuster bar in off the star wheel to adjust up it makes it easier.

Thanks ... I ended up adjusting with wheel / brake drum off,
mount drum - spin, remove/adjust/mount spin, etc.
About to do the wheel cylinders since I could not - for the
life of me - get them bled right. ( not first bleeding rodeo ).
