I thought they auto adjusted based on a lever connected to the hand brake?IMG_20140820_172045.thumb.jpg.07b8362965

is that one on the right way? Been a while since I looked at these, but from memory I thought the ratchet tooth flat faced the lever?

Yes I would agree with Duncan.The lever when the handbrake is operated should move the pinion to compensate for any wear.With the pinion like it is the lever would ride over the teeth without any adjustment being made.

Your right... I posted with this question which is where the photo came from and have changed it. The hand brake is very good after a few applications.
