Terry, you have it right. When I posted the last picture, I noticed the bolt head but couldn't see the slotted hole. Just now went and looked at the finished routing and turns out the cable is thru the variator arm slot as in the "before" picture.
Guess I forgot the aggravation of the reroute that occurred when it was time to bolt the shield in place.
Anyway, you got it finished in spite of my help! Sorry!!
p.s. I will label that picture as incorrect.
