this is nothing more than cables stretched its common on car of this age, Like mine probable have the adjustment nuts also rusted or seized, I managed to pack mine with some washer at the end of the cable to act as cable tensioners thus making the cable taught, Permanent fix although under the slam panel when removed its all in open veiw, Better option i thought than replacement i though, Obviously i had to cut a slit in the washes so that it would go over the cable and when i had 6-7 of these washer all in a line they were all secured by themselves and the taughtness
other thing i will suggest is making sure the springs on the bonnet are doing there job when bonnet pull is operated you want those springs to be under pressure so when it opens it pings open rather than just simply releases
If it all seems under control..............your not going fast enough !!
