    Rear derailleur cable stop issue

    I have a mid 80's Raleigh and the cable stop on the chain stay is round and only large enough to put a cable in, no room for housing.

    I am including a pic of my Schwinn which has no issue. The housing fits in with no end cap on it.

    I tried putting the housing in the hole but the tension just started to strip the housing off.

    Any ideas?

    Well, what's the question?

    I'd say the only problem with your Raleigh is that the housing forces an angle with the stop and will make it tend to bind and wear. Try re-cutting the housing to make it parallel to the chainstay. If necessary you can use a tie-wrap to hold it in place.
    Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?

    There are housing end ferrules with a small diameter extension that would fit into the cable stop on your Raleigh. They look like this:

    what you need is a Cable Housing Ferrules: Jagwire - 4mm Nylon Nosed Ferrule , which you can find at biketoolsetc.com.
