Drum brake reassembly 12 bolt

Hey guys. Wondering if you can give me some help. I'm currently looking for a good, detailed, explosion View of how to put my rear axle back together, currently I have all new parts for the entire rear axle and I need to put all the arms, Springs, hold Downs, clips, parking brake cables, everything that has to do with the drum brakes. Can anyone give me some help? Or a link that shows this good detailed instructions? Thanks in advance

This should help me quite a bit compared to my rusty junk for reassembly.

Thank you very much sir!

Re: Drum brake reassembly 12 bolt

Just waiting on two more arms and two more bars to show up along with the Springs. I'm hoping that the pivot pins are coming with arms because mine are non-existent. I started to try and reassemble today and I'm not quite sure how the e-brake cable fastens to the arm that is behind the one shoe. And I'm also not quite sure what this flat black thing is? It shown in the picture it's basically laying dead center in the middle besides the two hold down pins

The little black thing is the plug for the adjusting window in the backing plate.

But there is no window, even in my old backing plates there's no window I'm assuming that's just an extra part then

The adjustment window will be in the drum, the last couple I have done the adjustment window was just a faint stamping in the drum that I had to drI'll out myself.
