If the adjuster wheel isn't sharp enough or if the pawl is worn it may not work. Also lubing the adjusting stay with a hi temp brake grease is also needed for good operation.
On my truck the adjust was nearly round and the pawl had a large groove in it. So every rear change I will get all new hardware even adjusters.
