If it's the arrow on the tab on the brake rod that you are trying to line up with the arrow on the drum......don't. That's a brake wear indicator. Jack your bike up and back off the tension on the brake till the tire spins freely.
If you've done that and it's still not turning, you will want to pull the wheel off again and make sure that everything is in place on the brakes. If you are using your old hub on a relace, you shouldn't have any issues with the brakes.
