If anybody has a Jabiru engined Nipper, would you mind sending me some pictures of the Throttle arrangement?

I have not got any pictures but can try to explain how it is set up.
We used a throttle lever in cockpit with a cable clamped within a pivot bolt. The cable outer was clamped onto the airframe. Jabiru used to supply a fitting for the carb lever. Make sure that the outer is well clamped and lock wired at the carb.
A source of cable can be motorcycle shops or marine suppliers.
You can also use a Teleflex control cable with a 1032 rod end bearing at the cabin end and cut the outer / inner to suit length required as I did.

I hope this helps.
