I sounds as if you are not lifting the actuator shaft up thru the seal on the case a 1/4 inch and actually getting its hooked end to engage the center pull pin?
The cable clevis rivet on actuator shaft arm should be near aligned with the rear starter motor mount bolt tower when the actuator arm is engaged into the pull pin.
Lift up on the shaft as you try to rotate the arm into position.
With the actuator shaft engaged into the pull pin, one can use a 6 inch adjustable crescent wrench to test movement, with or without the cable connected.
