The good news is that I'm still able to learn

 I called up the cable shop to discuss what I'd found and chat a bit about 'what's next', and during the discussion, realized that I hadn't installed the caliper end of the cable housing properly.  Right after the call ended, I went out to the garage and fixed my problem.  The cable is now firmly seated and doesn't move around at all - which is what I wanted.  The lower end of the cable housing loop is now slightly tighter and above the lower rear shock bolt - another win.

But since this cable is about an inch too long, it's going to go back to be reduced in length and have a mate made before they both come back for installation.

Overall, it's been a pretty simple experience.
 The length of the 'overage' increased slightly due to the seating of the cable in the caliper in back.

While I wait for the cables to return - I'll check on the thermostat/flaps operation, check the timing and dwell and carburetor operation so that the only thing left is installation of the cables.

In a couple of weeks, I should have this thing fully functional and ready to drive.
