Once the outer cables are secured, the inners can be fed through them. The spring was installed over the cable, which was then fed through from the backplate. Though difficult to see here, the brakes don't have to be stripped down, but it's fiddly getting the cable end hooked up. The nipple on the end of the cable locates in the corresponding slot on the E-brake mechanism inside the brake drum. Using pliers to compress the spring, the nipple can be hooked over the mechanism using a screwdriver.
