Take careful note of where the various cables are routed. A misrouted cable can be a pain to troubleshoot because you least suspect it. Don't ask me how I know.
The easiest way is to use the existing cable as a fish tape and pull the new cable in where the old cable was as you pull the old cable.
When replacing the brake lines, be aware that an air bubble sometimes forms in the master cylinder where the actuating piston sits that no amount of bleeding will dislodge. I tapped the master cylinder case lightly with a screwdriver handle while pumping the brake handle rapidly to dislodge most of the bubbles but it was riding that got the last of the air out.

Be careful with the clutch lever as it has an interlock switch with a pin that sticks out that is easy to break. It's also easy to fix but if you don't have too...
