PA50 front brake cable questions

GORDON BRADBURY /

I have a bicycle shop out of my home (I am 70 years old and retired) and someone brought me a 1980 Honda PA50 with a flat front tire that they wanted fixed. I replaced the tube, but am now having trouble reconnecting the brake cable. I am also concerned that the spring on the cable end was on the wrong side of the cable stop on the brake drum. Can someone post a photo of the correct setup and give me some direction in how to get the cable reattached? Thanks!

the spring helps pull the pads off the drum. it pushes on the lever.

Thanks, that is how I assumed it should be, but when I received the moped the spring was on the opposite side so it was pushing the cable housing not the brake arm.

I still need help on getting the cable reattached. (edited)

Thanks for the photos you young whippersnapper. That is how I figured it should be assembled. Now to see if I can get it together.
