Handbrake new pads?

So I went and installed new handbrake, e-brake pads on the Viggen today. For some reason they are mot nearly as tight fitting as the ones in the pictures on 900saab I am getting some rubbing from them and it is making a scraping noise. I put all the springs and other pieces back right I am pretty sure.. I have the barrel adjuster all the way closed and I they are still tight to the rotor... What can I do to fine tune them or get them to fit better. In other words what did I do wrong.

The adjuster is all the way closed. But does the cable still have tension on the shoes? You may need to slacken the cable up at the adjuster under the car where the cables meet.

I will give that a try as I have tightened that before in the past. Thanks.

got her done. The rear wheels were actually a little loose as the rotor had not seated properly so a little driving and braking got the rotor seated well and then i cranked it down. Tweaked the cable adjustment and got the pads to bite at 4 and totally lock at 5 clicks up the handle.
