75 Chevy Parking Brake Question

Quick question, been searching online and through the books and not finding the answer. I've got the parking brake on my 75 Monte Carlo just chilling nearly on the ground. The cable comes from the pedal, and then splits up going to the back brakes. I get that the cable needs to be mounted somewhere, but not seeing where it goes. How does it mount?

on my 66 Elky
the front cable goes thru a hole in the frame and then up to the pedal.
this cable should have a "U" loop on the end for the intermediate cable.

the intermediate cable comes to the front from the rear and on the passenger side there is an "S" hook that hooks into the trans X-member.

That is the only support under the car for the intermediate cable.

The cable is held suspended by that "S" hook and the "U" loop.

It is adjustable at the "U" loop

The rear cables are supported at the drum and at the frame near the rear control arm.

You may have lost the "S" hook in the trans X-member, and that will make it
sag big time.
