SOURCE: Adjusting the emergency cable.
it will be a simple wrench adjustment on the cable itself, the cable should run underneath the driver side of the vehicle. You will see an adjustment area with a cable connected to a piece of all-thread that has a nut on it, generally, tightening this setup tightens the cable, loosening looses up the cable

It sounds like the shoes weren't adjusted correctly or the e-brake cables weren't hooked up right. If you have no tension at all when setting the parking brake, the cables might me off the arm or possibly broken. If there is a little tension when setting the brake try readjusting the shoes.

SOURCE: brake shoe springs
brake springs are usually color coded for convenience, so that should help. don't be afraid to look online for a diagram, grab a buddy that knows something, or buy a repair manual if you need it.

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.
Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!
