73 Midget Carb linkage confusion

I'm looking at posts and pix of HS2 SU linkages that I can find and I can't figure out if I have the setup right. Anyone have good pix of the throttle and choke setup? Also, how does the throttle and choke cable attach?

Thanks.

Yep, reverse the throttle bar and set it according to the manual. Just leave all the linkage nuts a little loose so you can adjust everything to the right position. Glad to see that you are at this point in the swap!

Thanks to both.

I'm used to TR3 SUs. Could you explain why there are two bars in later SUs? One is throttle bar and one is choke?
