>>Its hard to diagnose online, but is it possible that you only have 1 brake working correctly?

............... I would expected to be burned by each one,.....................

If you drive in an open lot, with no one around & hit the brakes hard at 35 MPH, does only the right rear skid?<<


I agree, you should look at it from that angle.

Wonder if your hot right rear drum is caused by bad bearings. f the drum is easy to come off, then adjuster is not wound out to bind brakes to the drum.

I would like to see a photo of the adjuster, just after you find a hot right rear drum

Yes,
When I hit the brakes hard, the right rear locks up.

Then that is the only one working!

Clean everything. Confirm you have no leaks, anywhere, adjust all of the shoes correctly before installing the drums. Then do your final adjustment before driving. lastly do your pumping the brakes while backing up trick for your final adjustment. Then try the skid test.

If all 4 don't skid something is still wrong.

Not yet
I have put this on the back burner, while I am swapping engines.
Once I get the engines switched I will try your recommendation.
Thanks
