Default Melody maker 494AC. Dial cord threading.

Hi, I am sure this is a simple question. I am more into restoring arcade machines than radios so please ignore my ignorance !
This is a radio I am trying to do up after my relative died.
Moving it with my fingers manually it does all work !!

I have tried to help myself by reading this post

https://vintage-radio.net/forum/showthread.php?t=137734

and looking at some YouTube videos

Basically I think the cord is broke assume it should be in one piece !!

I have worked out the spring goes in the wheel thing and roughly how it travels.

I have not got a replacement cord yet and some suggest fishing wire.

However for the life of me I cant work out how you connect the cord to the knob you turn round as no screw or hole to put it in. Hows it work. Said it would be simple. Thanks in advance.
