79 Firebird rear disc emergency brake adjust

I am new to the site, and need help on adjusting the emergency brake on a 79 firebird transplanted rear disc brake system into a 50 Merc coupe. I have good brakes and pedal, but put new cables on emergency brake, as old cable was bound up. I have adjusted the cable as tight as it will go, but does not set the brakes. I can set them by hand, but not with the foot brake. Motors manual does not give me a good direction on how to adjust these. Any help will be appreciated...Thanks...K.C.
