The brakes work rear first then the fronts, any slack is the movement from the shoe expanding until it touches the drum then the fronts come on. Test this by jacking up the rear and get someone to spin a rear wheel and you should notice that the pedal goes hard as the wheel stops turning. You will need to adjust the rear shoes so that they are touching the drum and just drag all the time. Slacken off the handbrake first, from the inside, to get proper adjustment and pump the pedal after each adjustment to get the shoes to center. You don't have to take the drum off everytime, you can make the adjustment from a wheel bolt hole. If you haven'e removed the lip on the drum, do so now by removing the drum.
