Throttle cable

I have a 79 bronco with a 351M and a T-18 4 speed tranny. I bought an edelbrock dual plane intake and an edelbrock 4 barrel carb to put on it. Everything is great except i can't seem to find a throttle cable to hook up the carb. If it was an auto tranny there are tons of options to hook it up but nothing for the manual. My throttle is set up with a rod through the firewall with a fork on the end of the cable hooks to this fork. The original carb has a ball stud and that end of the cable clicks on to the ball. The edelbrock carb just has a hole for a cable pin to hook into. Does anyone have any idea's on where i can get a cable that will work with this edelbrock carb. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Buy a ball stud and bolt it into one of the little holes on the Edlebrock. Like I did on my Qjet.

Lokar TC1000 universal cables come with a ball stud. I got mine at Summitt Racing ... About $30 for the assembly
