On the drum, the shaft I've indicated in the pic should have some adjustment in it.

Not much adjustment. Think I should try to lengthen it?
I think that it is where it was when I got the bike.



You can see the marks I made

I arced the positive side when my wrench hit it while adjusting the shift linkage

If you remove one side of the linkage on the brake drum, then apply both brakes, you can check the linkage rod length compared to where the brake shoes stop.
What is probably happening is one shoe hits before the other and you only get 1/2 the stopping power.  My bet is you will shorten the linkage rod. 
If you're interested , you can re-arc the brake shoes so they contact fully with the drum.  You spray glue sandpaper to the inside of the brake hub-220 grit.
Lightly apply the brakes  as you turn them inside the hub.  Remove and you will see the high spots.  Keep turning and applying until you have full contact.  Vacuum up the dust with a good vacuum, wear a mask.  Old brake shoes may contain asbestos.  If this scares you, there are brake and clutch companies that can do this process.

Should the linkage be adjusted so that there is no free play and no "preload" on the brakes?

I think one of my issues is that the old brake directly acted on the shaft. Now with my linkage, the stub on the brake lever is shorter then the stub on the shaft, so for any given travel, it is turning less degrees. Is that colorectal thinking?
I can  shorten the one, but not lengthen the other.

It lives!
I road it about 6 miles tonight.
Need a little tweaking still but I have Saturday for that and Sunday is the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride - Cleveland. I set that as my goal to get it road worthy.

I still cannot find a cool headlight  that I like and I will need shocks and a horn eventually.

I think a Lucas S700P would look good on this one.
