Reinstalling the encoder strip into the service station bracket on the right end of a DesignJet 500 DesignJet 510 and DesignJet 800 plotter can be a bit tricky.
But with the Service Manual and a few photos it is actually an easy task to accomplish. 
Parts involved:
Service Station Bracket C7769-60156 aka C7769-60391
Encoder Strip for 24 inch plotter models C7769-60183
Encoder Strip for 42 inch plotter models C7770-60013

So here are a few figures and instructions to help you on your way.

Follow up:

Note how the Encoder Strip bracket fits into the Service Station Bracket.
Fig 1: Indicates where the Encoder Strip will pass out of the plotter and around the bracket.
Fig 2: Indicates where the Carriage Belt Tensioner assembly is normally installed.

 

The Encoder Strip bracket must be properly hooked on the pin or nub on the Service Station bracket, the tension from the Encoder Strip will pull against the bracket and keep it locked in place.
The Encoder Strip will pass around the metal bracket from the rear side of the plotter and the two holes in the end of the Encoder Strip will be hooked over the two metal pins on the bracket. The rear most of the two pins is a bolt and has a nut and locking washer that screw down to hold the Encoder Strip in place.
Note: There is a great deal of tension on the Encoder Strip so it will not be easy to get it over the two pins and locked into place.
