parking brake cable adjuster

anyone got a link to a pic or schematic of how the parking brake cables go together on a yj. I need to know how the metal bracket pieces go together that tie the single main cable to the rear individual cables. Located by the drivers side frame rail in front of rear tire.
thanks

thanks for the pic. I think I figured out whats going on. Ive got the equalizer and cable adjuster but my main cable from the pedal wont hook into it. Instead of having a solid anchor (or whatever you'd call it) on the end it has a threaded rod. No way to get it to hook into the brake adjustment linkage. I ordered it years ago and never ended up finishing hooking it all up. It looks like its the cable used on 87-89 yjs. What stinks is that I'm sure I can't return it and I remember it being pretty expensive. Im thinking of bolting this threaded rod right into the equalizer and not using the other part of the adjuster mechanism. Any reason why this shouldn't work for me. Anyone got a pic of a pre 90 YJ ebrake setup at the adjuster. Maybe they used a different style adjuster that I could pick up.
