Did you feed the clutch line from the top or bottom?

You pretty much have to feed the new line in forward from the rear. Trying to go from the front would very likely require some very drastic bending of the new line to get it into its residential space. Coming from the rear is the way to do it!!
Keep the rubber side down.

Did you attach a line to the top of the cable ( hydraulic line )and pull the old one out through the bottom then tie on to the line and pull the new line in from the bottom ? Did you find you needed a lot of force to get it to pull through. I'm at that point where I'm going to pull the old one out and it feels like it's going to be a hard pull. Any hints?

It was not a very difficult pull by any means. I did NOT pull a tracer line through as the new line is preformed, very apparent as you go back in with it, where it is supposed to be.

Goter done. If anybody is interested a stainless steel clutch line for the 1500 needs to be 72 inches from the end of one bango bolt to the end of the other. 72 is a little bit long but better that then a little bit short
