Z-Diffusion Boom on a 2004 Beneteau Cyclades 43.3 with missing reefing lines

I have a Z-Diffusion Boom on a 2004 Beneteau Cyclades 43.3 with no reefing lines. There is an outhaul line only, but I need to be able to reef this boat.
I want to re-install the reefing lines. Can these lines be fished through from the goose neck side back with a wire fishing tool? I'm not sure if there is a pulley inside the boom for reefing lines. I can't seem to find a diagram for this boom.
Don't know why the previous owner would have removed reefing lines.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Use the outhaul line to pull the reefing lines you want. When they reach the end of the boom, you can move them, with a wire hook, to their correct location.

I hope this makes sense.

You will likely need to take the reefing line to a cabin top winch in order to get proper tension.

Good Luck
