That lever is intended for the later cable that has a rubber end that fits into that thimble. Other end of the cable goes directly into the drum.
I seem to recall my original early 90 handbrake cable had a threaded end that want into a bracket mounted behind the seatbox. The handle itself itself did not attach in any way to the cable housing, only the inner cable.
which handbrake do you have? bracket on the transfer box or cable directly into the drum?
part number for the cable in your photo?
