Default Clutch Cable + Handbrake Cable Help

I have a couple of questions on fitting my clutch and handbrake cables.

My clutch cable looks simple enough but from this thread:


I am not sure what I am doing wrong, as my setup looks like this:

Do people remove the rubber bung and washer on the end that goes into the pedal box? I also think that I will be changing the pedal box so that the clutch cable boss is at 90 degrees to the back and not angled like it is currently, then the cable will install underneath my rear brake line.

Also for my handbrake cable I have fitted one side of the cable to the drum and will be pulling the remaining cable through the other drum and cutting it to the correct length and fitting a solderless nipple. I just want to make sure I have the cable correctly installed before I do this, my setup looks like the following, is this right?

1.8 Silvertop Zetec (ZX6R Carbs + Megajolt) + Type 9
