Ok, so today I installed the front and rear brake cables and it was a piece of cake. 1st question: How tight do the nuts on those things need to be? Should the spring be compressed before squeezing the handle or should it be elongated?

Second question: The bike still doesn't want to stop when I pull the handles. I can feel a little friction with the front brake and just barely any with the rear brake. does this mean I need new pads?

3rd problem: The screw head that will open the throttle cable housing is stripped almost completely out. How do I remove this screw since I can't get a grip with a screwdriver?

thanks again, and sorry for the elementary questions.
