Default E brake springs

Can someone provide me with a link to a photo of how the springs connect to the emergency brake bands inside the rear hub? I took them off years ago because they were so stuck I couldn't even roll the thing around. Now I'm trying to put it back together and I can't remember how they hook up.

Brattons has assembly diagrams. There is one for the rear brake assembly that may help.

I've seen those but they don't really show what the non-band end attaches to.

If you don't have time to do it right the 1st time, how do you have time to do it the 2nd time?

FYI

The return springs in the above picture are not correctly on.
They need to be on the outer triangular tab, not the inner triangular tab.

Thanks, I put the pieces together for the photo and did not notice that the springs were on the wrong tab.


Thank you Randy!!
