K brake on a wood hopper (early 1900's)

I am assembling the F&C kit 2081 "NYO&W 34' wood hopper". The
instructions say to "attach the K brake." Lotsa help that is!
Neither the "instructions" nor the two photos I have help, the brake
is hidden. I have surveyed all my styrene hoppers, all are AB
brakes, some have the cylinder pointing to the brake wheel/rod, or in
the center of the car (USRA). Now, even the Stewart is pretty basic
as far as detail goes. Does anyone know where the K brake would go?
