Chang Star Cantilever Parts

Next time I get a bike I know to take close-ups from beginning. With this bike I am trying to reassemble above-referenced brake. I encountered 2 concerns. First, I am trying to reset yoke. A Park Tool video helped but I wonder how to flatten existing wire. Could I leave wire capped, use 2 hands for tightening yoke or do I need to maneuver the wire while I tighten? Perhaps more interestingly, I observed 2 metal pieces within wire/cable. I know 1 piece to go into headset. The second is an open oval with a bit of closed metal on its' side. It is trapped between a barrel where housing starts towards yoke and yoke. What is it? Didn't seem it would reach headset so what do I do with it?

Google shows it looks like a cable hanger for the headset. Just above the reflector hanger in the headset?

If it's a cable hanger, you may need to remove the reflector mount to install the hanger. Or get a different reflector mount. There are some that are threaded to accept a barrel adjuster to function as a cable hanger; others that mount at the fork crown or handlebars to avoid interference with a cable hanger. Your LBS or co-op should have a variety available.
