Hmmm.....the clutch cable first goes through the cable bracket - that's where the round rubber piece for the newer cables (or the lock nuts for the older cables) would be. You are using the newer cable with the large round rubber piece. The round rubber piece stops there, and then you have the squiggly rubber piece, and at the end of that, there you see the threaded rod. On your car, there is a spring that actually goes over that threaded rod, before you feed the rod in through the last bracket (which is the clutch release arm). The rod goes through the clutch release arm, and then you put the nut on the end of the rod. On your car, that end nut is what's used to adjust the clutch cable. So, you are saying that you have two inches of threaded rod, after the clutch release arm??? And that your clutch feels stiff? If I'm understanding this correctly, then use that last nut to adjust your cable -
