Yes, exactly like that.
Aftermarket clutch quadrants tend to fall into two categories. One for stock, nonadjustable clutch cables and ones for aftermarket adjustable cables. The difference between them is the angle of the hook. The MM quadrant shown below has an angle of 97 degrees and is designed for a nonadjustable cable. The blue quadrant shown below has an angle of 135 degrees and is designed for an adjustable cable.
If your multihook quadrant has its most forward hook at about the same angle as the MM quadrant, it should work fine with a nonadjustable cable. Below is an example of a three hook quadrant. The angle of the front hook is 80 degrees. This quadrant will work with a nonadjustable cable, if also used in conjunction with an MMCL-017 ($15.97, must be ordered by calling).
If your clutch cable required 4-5 lbs of force to pull with it out of the car, unloaded, it is a piece of junk.
For any clutch quadrant installation, unbolt the driver's seat, remove from the car and double nut the front mounting studs to unscrew them from the floorpan. Then lay down a thick blanket before laying down upside down in the car.
