New handbrake cable, now to tight

I have a 1995 hzj75. I needed a longer handbrake cable to make room for a toolbox under the tray.
I have installed a handbrake cable from a 79 series and the length is perfect.
But it seems like the adjustment is a bit different so even though I have loosened the little nut on the actual handbrake lever the brakes still rubs a little. And this is with worn brake pads.

Any idea what I can do to adjust the cable length so the wheels can spin freely again?
