Looks right.
Is your servo working so you're actually receiving peddle assistance?

That’s another good question.
I’m comparing back to back with the 4 cyl shoes & drums so I don’t see the servo as a factor at the moment.
Those adjuster bolts are rusted & seized so I might cut them off/drill & tap a new thread to insert stainless bolt & lock nut.

If you just fit the probably missing wooden/fibre pads you might find they will be in the right place.

They're clearly illustrated in your parts list, otherwise google the part number for a picture.

Just for peoples future reference as I've replaced mine with genuine posts form PABlanchard..(In a nice old school Girling box and wax paper!)

This is what the adjustment posts look like...

Don't quite know how you get the adjustment perfect but it looks wquite obvious by eye when they aren't 90 deg to the back plate..?
