Don't think the lack of the spring is your problem with the clutch adjustment issue. Reason being... My '82 doesn't have a clutch return spring on the release lever, nor is the cable there for the Hill Holder, which is there.
The guy that did the engine swap, left the HH cable off, mainly because he didn't re-mount the HH when he moved it rearwards. He did put an accelerator return spring on the release lever for the clutch. Clearly not even close to what it should be size wize.
I do have good pedal adjustment with proper free-play. And the clutch fully releases if I put the pedal on the floor. May have to tweak it a bit more.
Only problem I do have is the clutch will slip during shifts, if I'm hard on the gas and on dry pavement. Loose stuff, or painted shop floors are no problem. Thinking the slippage is from the spring not being what it's supposed to be. Not 100% on that though. Could just be weak pressure plate.
I haven't messed with a clutch cable on any Sube yet, but I do have a new one out in the garage for when I do the 5 speed swap. Therefore, I can't give you any tips or tricks on it But clearly, something isn't right. Would consider what was said in your first posting on this, about the release bearing and holders. You shouldn't have the same problem with 2 different cables.....

I don't remember if you used new parts or remanned. If remaned it could be a weak pressure plate or even a bad surface or resurface. What I mean is that it could be out of tolerance. When turning the flywheel for vehicles newer than 1984 you have to be careful for the machine shop turning it for ea81 and ea82's. They both have different specs on flywheel depth.

(edit) I see that you called it an "option", so I guess that's the answer - it must have had that option!
