Assuming it is rear DRUM brakes, adjust the shoe until there is friction when spinning the wheel or drum, back off a shade.

Most have self ajusters on them. Ajust them out until the drum will hardly fit back on. After you put the wheels back on and your done with putting the brake shoes on. Find a place where you can run your car in reverse safely. Go bakwards about 25 miles an hour and hit the brakes hard. Do this several times and they should ajust themselves out to where they should be. This is assuming like above we are talking about the back brakes and they are drum style brakes.

The 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme takes 18" replacement windshield wiper blades on both sides front. Note, when buying wipers be sure to always lookup your vehicle make, model and year in the application guide book at the store, or now-a-days you can Google 'lookup wiper size'. You want to look this up because correct wiper fit is more than correct length, it's also proper attachment. Not all attachments fit all arms. Using the application guide or looking up wiper size online will avoid headaches of buying the right lengths with the wrong attachments.
