By adjusting the cable, the pads are not meeting the drum evenly, only one end of the pads will make contact. The cable causes the pads to pivot, but the star wheel adjusts the pivot point. It is hard to explain but if you look at the system and see what the star wheel does and compare it to what happens if you tighten the cable it will make sense.
