    Bondobillies way worked. Attach the top spring to the shoe and post and leverage off the upper post, put the pin in; then do the other shoe the same way. Place the adjuster in its slots and then do the lower spring. Then push it all down into place. The color of springs was correct. Any other method of attaching the springs , in my hands, spelled PROBLEMS. Thank for all the help. I have been slow on this job, hurt the old back,that will slow young or old down. Thanks again.

      Then you don't need the paint?

          Most brake spring pliers will have a kerf cut into one of the handle ends. It's there to be used the same way Nate used the screwdriver. A little dab of white lube on backing plate contacts and the ends of each spring helps prevent squeaks, helps the springs go on a little easier, and makes them last longer.
