I have found that method of adjustment never really works.
I let off the handbrake cable adjustment - adjust the internal drum adjusters manually. This can be abit fiddly but works best. Then adjust the handbrake cable adjuster until the rear wheels lock - then slacken off until I can get 5-7 notches on the handbrake lever.
