MN12 Parking Brake???

I am building a tbucket using a modern drive train from a Mark VIII.



I have rear calipers from a Cougar IRS which is the same as Mark VIII and SC Thunderbird.



I am having a challenge figuring out how the parking brake works. I bought the brakes separately so I didn't see how they were installed. After looking at manuals for Cougar, Thunderbird, and Mark VIII, it seems that the moving part of the parking cable is set in a non-moving part of the caliper and the outer casing (non-moving) is set in the moving part of the parking brake spring.

In other words, I can seem to make it work. I know I am doing something wrong. I am hoping someone could offer some advice please.

If we look at all other parking brakes:

The moving part of the cable (inner cable) is fixed into a sprung lever (parking brake lever).
