I found something I hate more than drum brakes. Miniature drum brakes used for an e-brake.

I cannot figure out how to get the big (rear) shoe retaining spring attached. What is the trick? With the spreader in place or removed?

Do you mean #6 or #4?

Shoe retainer #6 has to be pushed in then rotated 90 degrees. There are special brake retainer tools or you can usually do it with locking needle nose pliers.

#4 has to be streched into place. A brake spring tool is very useful for that.
