That rubber hose should be OK for a start up but I would keep an eye on it when the engine is hot as it may soften & colapse inwards on high revs. I am running with the 126 594 ccs metal tube & rubber connectors. I have been looking in all my books today about that backfire thing. Not enough time now to tell the whole story but you will be OK putting it where it best suits you  [-/

That nearest M8 bolt at the base of the ally dynamo mounting casting is easiest.  [-/

 :D Congratulations!!!  **-

You need a fuel air meter (in a car service for example). If you can't reach the correct mixture, you'll have to play with the jets. No other way to do it "by book" with the new camshaft and exhaust :D

You'll definitely need those if you don't want the throttle linkage to fall apart :)

There's a rod that has both ends bent which goes from the throttle cable linkage (near the air filter housing) to the end of the throttle plate rod lever on the side of the carb that faces you.

The cables that run under the car are the handbrake cables, speedo cable (at back of gearbox near the tunnel), clutch cable, starter cable (if it's the old type of starter motor) while the throttle cable and choke cable are led up into the engine bay....

That holds the clutch cable in place on the side of the gearbox (left hand side above rubber gearbox mount), with a spring washer and M6 nut if i remember correctly (could be an M6 bolt)... the bottom of that bracket goes into a slit on the gearbox...

Some clutch cables have the gearbox mounting bracket fixed to them & others use a separate bracket  [-/
