I know this is an old post, but in case someone else is reading this.
This should be a self adjusting clutch cable. However, in order
for the mechanism to work correctly, you need to first "collapse"
the cable so that it can be installed.
Once the cable is collapsed (outer accordion shell compressed), attach
the cable at both ends and then it can be extended.
Pump the clutch pedal 5 or more times to allow the self adjusting
mechanism to find the correct adjustment.
In order for the cable to stay collapsed, it should have a plastic
tie-strap of some kind, that hooks into the lower part of the accordion
bellows, to keep the bellows collapsed. See image.
