    Yes it is and i can even play with the wire thats how loose it is. And it seems that something is holding the drum to slide in place i have no idea what else to do with it

    Shoes aren't aligned properly by the sounds of things they either need to be moved up if drum is catching on bottom or down if there catching on the top.

    Lets say if i adjust them all the way down there is alot of space for the drum to sit am i right?? Why is even when is all the way down it doesn't fit right it goes in part of the way and it gets stuck 1/4 way in

    Not adjust outwards with adjusted. Up and down, they may have been locked out of place.
    Look where gets stuck and move accordingly

    Found the problem. The piston was stuck making it impossible for the brake shoes to close up together properly so the drum can squeeze in
