1996 Mustang GT clutch adjustment keeps slipping

Ok so here goes my story. My clutch cable was frayed so i replaced it then about two days later my clutch went out . I pulled tranny and replaced clutch throwout bearing and piolet bearing. After tranny was installed i adjusted the cable with throwout bearing sitting 1/8 inch away from pressure plate like forums say. I got in the car and started tried to put in first but wouldnt go at all. I pulled tighter and it was fine for about 30 min of driving then wouldnt go into gear. I got it back to the house and got under to check cable and it had about 1/2 inch of play in the cable again. I adjusted and was fine for 30 min this has happened 3 times. I know the nuts arent moving on the threads cuz i marked with pen. PLEASE HELP

Do you have the stock clutch quadrant or an aftermarket one, mine was aftermarket when I got it so no experience with the stock one, but from what I hear it's plastic and self adjusting, maybe it's jacked up and not holding the adjustment right.
