Default Mechanical brakes -- help

Does anyone have a picture they can post or explain proper spring placement for '38 mechanical brakes?

Just went to change front wheel grease seals and realizing the springs are put on differently compared to the back and different from one another. I took picture from before I touched anything and it's not been correct since previous owner....

I have red and black upper, orange and green lower and the return spring. Assuming red above orange and black above green but which combo goes on return spring side?

Better yet, here is a pic of drivers side(left) front. Is this correct? Orange spring is a little longer than green.

here is a pdf of my 37 brake springs and locations. I have more individual spring details if you need them. Let's see if my pdf loads...
Note: some of the info in the Early V8 37/38 book is incorrect.
