Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Give me a moment and I will let you know where that should attach.
It does not clamp down tight to the cables. There should be a ferrule on the clutch cable near the rear end of the cable, this clamp just fits around the clutch cable and brake cable and get tightened down, all it is there for is to hold the two cables together so that when you press the clutch pedal all the way down it engages the brake.
Do you have both ends of the brake cable housing installed in the retainer brackets? This is the only thing that I see that might cause you cable to be too long.
One end of your cable should have a black plastic piece, spring and cotter pin on it. You would have to remove it from the old cable and transfer it over to the new cable. Do you have that in place?
If the black plastic is not attached in the right place it will cause the brake cable to be too long to work properly with the clutch cable. The black plastic attaches to the brake lever on the drive assembly.
I am sorry that I am not able to help you any further. I will opt out of your question and maybe one of the other experts here can be of more assistance to you.
