Question 04 pt cruiser rear drum brakes hand brake don't work

Me and my dad first time changing drum brakes before but did allot of research for them, got all the springs and the pads off, bought all new springs for both sides and new revited brake shoes got all of it back on, but we're not too sure on how the auto adjuster is suppose to go like how much tension are we suppose to have on that because I put the adjuster tight enough to were when spin the drum it seemed like there was friction, but then I put the tire on and used the hand brake a couple of times then engage the hand brake and the tires kept spinning freely with the hand brake engaged. Do we not have the auto adjuster open far enough? How much do we need to go on the adjuster before we know it's good? It's just that part we are having problems with, the brakes work when we press the brake pedal so we do have brakes but no hand brake and we did before we changed everything to. Hope someone can help us on this issue. Thanks
