HELP ****Parts needed

Guys,
I am having trouble finding some part. Is there anyone on Brisbane who know where I can get these parts. I have been to several wreckers and can't find any....

Accelerator cable - I have heard that a V8 cable from a Xc or similar will work, but I bought one from Repco and it's not long enough.

Speedo cable - All i really want atm is to block up up the hole in the C4 gearbox.

Modulator tube from gearbox to carbie - Can this be made just using vaccum hose?

Need these part ASAP cos I am so close to starting up, but I am getting too frustrated, too quick.

Cheers Daniel

Re: HELP ****Parts needed

if u need a really long cable, use an accel cable from a multipoint eb-ed - outstretched it will reach almost to the back of the left hand headlight and modifying it suit is simple.

the modulator tube u can make from bundy tube. it's cheap and easy to cut/bend to suit.

dunno what u can do for the speedo cable but. nobody keeps stuffed cables.
