Default Throttle Linkages

What are the best options for throttle linkages with a zenoah and 1048 carb?
I can't post photo's yet but the best description of the mount is "Quick change style"
oz rc boat supplies has them under their hardware section.

I didn't see anything on their site and half a world away I did have theirs saved. Try eBay for throttle linkage setups.
Mine are kind of like this:

I've been using these direct cable drives. Been working great for me.

Joe and I were working on basically the same thing at the same time but I was using parts from Servo City. His turned out much better.
Here's more of a close-up of a normal throttle setup.

Cheers. Much appreciated. That's the way I've gone.

Quick question, why the spring on the end of the push rod?

That's a Sullivan connector, the spring holds part of the cupped area held into the cup. Just pull it back and it unhooks from the ball, a fast way to do it. The usually ball and cup fittings work well also. I try different types of setups to see how well they work.

The nice part about that connector is they can be used on just about any kind of carb. I have the same connector on the throttle arm of my scale hydroplane(the one pictured in my avatar) and it works great for quick removals and installations.
