If I were experimental I'd probably use a Morse Cable. You can see them here:

They are used for steering, brakes, shifters and on and on in race cars. They should do just fine opening a butterfly :D and if you shop around you should be able to beat Jegs prices...
Take care, Rob

Let me know what you find. I need one. Not sure if 180HP needs longer length or not. I haven't hung my engine just yet. Will check out Jegs too.

I just ordered a Jegs one along with some 6' (trimable) push/pulls for Carb heat, interior heat etc. The showed up this morning. I'd say nice. I ordered the 5' throttle cable from the piper prints. Price is right.
