Throttle cable

Hi guys, I'm back from the dead. Blew the dust off the old HQ and re-started the never ending task again.

One of the first things I want to do is fix the throttle cable setup. What I have ATM is the factory cable turned around the back of the engine (the factory setup has it pulling from the font). Its a flimsy cable and pedal that struggles with the heavy return springs of the big Holley. It also looks pretty bad bent into an S shape, but it looks better than the original front pull setup.

What options do I have for a nice heavy duty setup? I plan on fabricating a new pedal, but I'm lost after that. There is a local guy that will make almost any cable to any spec. Can I have a rear pull with a cable, or should I make up a linkage setup for that?

Anyone got any pics of theirs?
