brake trouble on my snark

I was disassembling the rear brake hub on my 1978 Bianchi Snark to check to see how much brake pad I had left for my brake was not grabbing the wheel in order to stop it. Well the break pad was just fine but still I put it back together and the breaks still refused to grab the wheel in order to stop the bike. So, I took it apart again and sanded the pad to roughen it up and I wiped the drum to make sure there was no oil present. Still the brake refused to grab. Anymore suggestions for my problem?

work the arm back and forth that the cable would pull,

make sure all pivot points are lubricated.
