Air Brake question. Does anyone know much about this type of slack adjuster?

I am doing a rear axle seal and need to remove the brake drum. To do that I need to back out the slack adjuster. The one on my bus must be a really old type as I never seen this kind before. Has anyone used this type? I assume the clip thing is the lock-nut and the adjustment screw is on the back side, but I wanted to get some advice from someone who has done these before. See photo Thnx! Clayton

You are correct, back it off with the adj on the back side the bracket just keeps it in place for adjusting, the new versions don't have the brackets

Ok, I had to double check in my shop ( I was second-guessing myself after I put in my reply) that is a Haldex unit, the nut on the back side is a 7/16 inch and that is the adjuster

I appreciate your help. After you mentioned Haldex, I was able to find this fantastic video on them if anyone else needs it.
