Help with shift indicator

I have a broken cable on my shift indicator in my '70 280S with column shift. I have pulled the cluster, removed the broken bits but for the life of me I can't figure out where to attach the square hookie thing on the end of my new replacement part. The old one was not attached to anything when I removed it so, as my wife would say, I'm cluless. Any help would be appreciated.
