Firewall adjuster with oem cable?

I just had to buy the oem clutch cable because my aftermarket bbk one broke after just three months. So my question is can I install this cable with the firewall adjuster and quadrant? Modifications need to be done to the cable and I don't want to break the 120 dollar brand new cable. I've attached the picture of the end of the cable that needs modifications. Has anyone modified their oem cable to fit firewall adjuster? If not I'll just take out the firewall adjuster and put this stock cable in by itself.

If running a non-stock clutch, having the firewall adjuster (along with ditching the flimsy stock quadrant/adjusting mechanism for an aluminum quadrant) is generally recommended.

So yeah, I'd go ahead with the minor modifications needed to use a stock cable with the adjuster. If you need any additional direction on this, look up the firewall adjuster install instructions on MaximumMotorsports site, it's pretty detailed about what exactly needs to be done.

I just made the modifications but I just cannot get this cable to hook onto the quadrant. I haven't even hooked up the bell housing end yet but I just cannot get enough slack to hook onto this quadrant.

I got the new cable on. Now my 3 month old throw out bearing is really loud again. The reason I got the aftermarket cable was to put more pressure on that tob to quiet it down but now that I went back to an oem cable, it's chirping again. Can this be quieted without replacing the tob? Again its pretty much a brand new tob.
