The earlier drums are somewhat self-adjusting but have an adjustment 'knob' built into the upper shoe pivot.  The knob is roughly 1/4" square and is 'inboard' of the drum housing.

Ajustment basically consists of removing the wheel and adjusting the knob such that the shoes are just on the brink of dragging inside the drum.  As I mentioned, there is some self-adjustment and this procedure shouldn't be necessary very often.
