Download your service manual from here...
"K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts"

It shows you how to do about anything. Easy to follow... They change through out the years, so this way, you have your specific model's manual.

So the cable is moving, the caliber is closing but your getting no braking power?

What's the pad look like?

You need to remove the cable from the parking brake lever on the caliper, remove the lever, spin the splines on the caliper, until the caliper piston floats out and applies some pressure to the pads and rotor, back it off until it frees up then put the lever back on and install the cable... Its easy. But like I stated above, download the manual and use it, just in case there is a model change. These parking brakes are real pussies even when they are adjusted. There's not much pad or rotor surface to hold them on a steep incline.
