Thanks John.  Understand reason for throttle only.  I just decided to keep all cables off the inst panel.  Do I understand that you ran both cables through the firewall?  I was trying to limit number of holes in firewall is the reason for my running right seat control over to left seat and then left seat only to engine.  I think the Jabiru has a ckoke as it doesn't have a primer or accelerator pump as Continental carburetors have.  Not sure though.
