78 Bronco Tailgate Check cable springs and harware

Pulled my tailgate off to fix a little rust.
Putting it back on now and reinstalling the check cables.
Mine has a shoulder style bolt/screw.
Wrapped around that are springs, a thick washer, and a stamped sheet metal piece/plate.
I can see the purpose is too help locate the cables as the gate goes up and down.
BUT...
I was not smart enough to remember how these things all went together.
I know that I don't have them right now.
Been looking for an illustration or schematic without any luck.
Tried searching here thinking someone else must have done this same thing before.
So far no luck.
Anyone either have a link or maybe a picture of how their's is?
Appreciate any help.
BIG THANKS
