What adjuster did you lose? There is a coarse adjustment at the bottom end of the clutch cable and a fine adjustment at the top end. I do not recall the exact way the cable fits into the lever. Would it be possible to take up a bunch of slack in the bottom adjuster to make up for the top one being gone? This would not work if the outer barrel of the cable fits into the upper adjuster which is probably the way it works.

With that cable adjuster NOT installed, what happens when you pull the clutch lever? Does the cable get pulled and the outer barrel of the cable get stopped from moving by some other part of the clutch perch? If so, you could probably use the bottom coarse adjustment to get enough tension on the cable for it to work.
