I have two sets of Shimano 600 (Arabesque and the latter mid 80's version) and I believe they both have a hole in the center of the bolt that the brake cable should slide into before tightening. Take a closer look at the bolt and move it around a bit to see if the hole moves into view.

Spin the rear washer round until the two tabs lock either side of the caliper... I think, been a long time lol

Hey, those modern cartridge brake pads look pretty sweet there. I may have to try some of those on my retro roadies. Then I can run salmon koolstop pads.
