Bicycle brake/shifter cable and sheath?

Or use metal cable instead of the plastic push-rod in the same outer tube the short distance from the end of the housing to the actuator and the throw for the lever should be ok. You can use some heat with the cable in the actuator to get the bend with out the binding.

Edit, JBweld to secure the pushrod ends to the cable, and a drimel like tool to cut the cable without fraying.

Learn from the mistakes of others, that way when you mess up you can do so in new and interesting ways.

One mile of road will take you one mile, one mile of runway can take you around the world.
