Default clicking noise from rear brake revisited

I have posted before about a clicking noise from my right rear 01 Ltd's brake, after I replaced the brake cylinder on that side.

I have attached 3 pics, because when I look at the brake set-up, I cannot find anything wrong, with the one possibility, incorrect setting of the distance of the brake pads.

In chapter 9 of the Haynes bible, it says to adjust the distance across the friction surfaces of the parking brake shoes at 6 3/4 inches.

Can anyone tell me from what point of the shoes to measure that distance?

The overall distance is much larger than the 6 3/4 inches.

Man disc brakes are so much easier!!

You might try to initiate the 'self-adjusting' feature by backing up quickly,and then sharply pulling up on the parking brake lever?(may need to repeat 2-3 times!).....See if that helps.
