Mounting of Timer control coil to relay bracket

Could someone please post a pic of the timer control coil where it is clamped to the relay bracket? Or is it clamped to the jubilee horn bracket? I can't seem to find the right angle to make things work correctly. Also on the timer stud that the control wire threads through, the hole is angled. Which side should the wire enter from? (I am wondering if the stud needs to be turned 180 deg.)

lower bracket bolts to the case
hard to see, but the wire is a straight shot into the pin on the timer

exactly as Mike Beam said, its a straight shot. the extension on the bracket is sandwiched between the relay and the mounting boss and holds the clamp which secures the spiral cable. I wrapped a little friction tape around my cable jacket to help hold it in the clamp. Rotate the pin in the timer so that that the inboard side of the hole is closest to the timer.

Thanks you guys. I see then that I need to take my timer apart and spin the stud around. I remember when going through the bushings and gear shim on my timer wondering if it mattered which way that stud went back in. Now I know! I had been simply running with a spring holding the timer fully advanced but with my rebuild decided it was time to set it up stock, which I had never had before.

just loosen the nut on the stud, push it in a bit, spin it 180, then put the nut back on....
