I think you have the brake just a touch to tight now the way the brake hub works it threads on and when you put the brakes on it will tighten the drum. But if you over tighten the band brake and you spin the wheel back wards the drum will un thread. So your going to have to take the wheel off and re thread the drum back on. Make shure that when you set the brake cable tension that all the adjusters are backed off all the way then set the brake cable tension so it is very close to touching but not. Now that you have cable set you can use the adjusters on the brake lever and the adjuster near the rear brake to get it even closer.
