Hi Paul - whenever I get brake drums with a badly worn ridge I take the small angle grinder to it and gentle buff it off - then with coarse emery deglaze the inside of the drum. Using course emery I also give the brake shoes similar treatment. It usually cures it. It is possible the lining on the shoes have been overheated at some time - if so the only cure is replacement. Last set of rear brake shoes cost me around 14 from my local motor factor. As a matter of interest did you check that all pistons in the slave cylinders werent seized or leaking - you need to have a peak under their dust covers
