centerboard cable reinstall

We have a sabre 34 1979. Our centerboard cable broke, we have rethreaded the cable up to the spool that the crank is attatched to but can not coerce the 3/16 inch cable into the hole that is in the spool. We are certain that we have used the correct size cable because it was sent to us from Sabre. The old cable was difficult to remove from the spool which makes us wonder how they threaded it in the first place. Sabre is no help, our only thoughts are to drill a bigger hole. Anyone out there have a similiar problem?
