Default Rear backing plate/brake installation Les Andrews instructions

Is it just me, or is it impossible to install the assembled rear brake backing plate onto the axle the way that Les Andrews describes in his red manual? Les calls for installing the parking brake lever before installing the backing plate. I tried for about an hour, and there is no way that I could find to get the parking brake lever and the service brake lever through the fork in the radius rod. I took the parking brake lever off, and it slipped right on.

I should have known better than to follow those directions because in the disassembly instructions, Les calls for removing the parking brake lever while the backing plate is still on the car. Could I have an early edition that Les corrected in later editions?
