Be careful with this part, as the brake shoes are under load. It took me a couple of tries (and different methods) to accomplish this properly.
Carefully spread apart the round side of the brake shoes and place them through the round bolt on the brake drum assembly.
Then, spread apart the flat side of the brake shoes and place them through the flat bolt on the brake drum assembly.
The shoes should now be sitting as shown.
Replace and tighten the 22 mm lug nut with a ratcheting socket wrench.
Use a hammer and pair of vise grips to slide the wheel retaining pin back into place.
Follow the directions in step 2 in reverse order to reattach the brake cable.
Adjust the brake cable adjustment nut as necessary. The rear brake lever should be about 0.8" to 1.0" away from the handlebar when fully engaged.
