The OEM Ford 89-93 Mustang clutch cable, (which in my personal opinion, is the best one), does not have any adjustment on the fork end. The cars had an automatic adjuster as part of the stock quadrant, so it was not required. If you have a cable that has the adjustment on the fork end, it is not the same one.

Ford Performance sells an adjustable one, with a Ford part number, but that is not the same as the original one. They may have gotten better, but they had a completely different inner housing construction, and cable, similar to the Chinese knock offs.

Curious, did your old cable show any signs of fatigue, as far as any frayed threads?
