I did the same as John, but was not happy with the geometry of Vans carb bracket as the cable made a sharp angle from the bracket to the mixture arm. I modified Vans bracket to shallow out the cable and put less stress on the cable, bracket, and mixture arm.
I also moved the fuel outlet to the rear port so I could exit out the back and put my fuel flow sensor in the upper plenum.
