How does this outhaul work?

My new to me 1963 Shark 24 is finally in the water after many, many hours of work. I am having issues figuring out how the outhaul works. There is a pulley on the boom on a track(see picture attached) but I am unsure how I am supposed run the line in the pulley. Obviously, I tie a line to the rear corner of the sail, run it around the back of the boom, and then attach to the outhaul pulley, but it doesn't seem to make sense. Anyone had one of these on their boat?
