I have an A-800 from Aircraft Spruce and have limited experience .  What is the best form of firewall penetration to connect this cable to a Marvel Scheibler carb?

I do not know what's best, or what is used to connect to a Marvel Scheibler Carb, but this is what we used as a firewall penetration for our A-800 cable; purchased from Aircraft Spruce.  The .250 hole size was not as snug as we liked so for the passenger side went one size smaller.  While likely not needed, we use silicone sealant (red) on all firewall penetrations.  Even our grommets are silicone.  You can see more on our builders page at https://www.facebook.com/Experimental750ES/
