Adjusting Drum Brakes

New shoes and cylinders are on their way (very affordable!) so will be rebuilding the rear brakes over Xmas. Just a question on adjusting. I have always worked on the principal of locking the wheels and then turning the adjuster back until there is no rubbing of the shoes on the drum whatsoever. However, one manual I read said to back off until wheels are "just free to turn". Surely this can't be right?

HQ air box foam gaskets

Does anyone know of a source for obtaining new or very good used foam gaskets (see attachment) for HQ airbox and blanking disc to plenum chamber fitment?

These items are from fitted factory HQ air-con.

As you can see from the pic that the gaskets are corrupted with rust and I don't want to put them back in. I'll try cleaning them up to eliminate the rust, but even if sucessful I'd still prefer to use nice new ones.

I had a good look at Rare Spares site today and they don't seem to make/sell them.
