Default coaster brake probs....please help

So after having my bike down for over a wek waiting on bearings i got it backs together. i bought a proper cone wrench so i could tighten the lock nut (thats why the last bearings failed) anyway i have it all together and the brakes worked proper when upside down and pedaling by havd to test. when i cranked her up and tried to apply the brakes the pedal moved back then grapped and jerked forward. the coaster part functions fine but instead of braking it act like the clutch is grabbing when pedals are pushed back. I thing i have the brake shoes on proper but im not sure. its a real PITA to take off the tank flip it over and mess with disassembling the rear hub any ideas so i can do it once and be done? thanks guys
