Yeah, when removing the clutch cable, it doesn't just slide out from the bracket; there is a slightly extended metal part in the bracket (on the radiator-facing side) that needs to be cleared, carefully, so the rubber part of the cable there won't be damaged. Also, the clutch cable will likely need re-adjustment after 200 miles or so. Also, check the throw-out lever spring for tension. Best to assess this before and after job. Good time to check the MT mount, front and rear dog-bone mounts, and rear circular mount too.
You using OEM or aftermarket clutch/throw-out bearing/pressure plate?
