Linkage Question Regarding Weber 38 Install

Tried looking for answers through the search but it just added to my confusion.  I previously was running dual 40 dcoe's with a top mount linkage that was connected to an aftermarket throttle cable that went straight to the pedal.  I am in the midst of reverting to a Weber 38 through a kit that utilizes the rod style linkage.  Is there a way to use the Weber 38 without switching back to the original (stock) rod style linkage?  You'll have to excuse me if this is an obvious answer, I don't have the kit in front of me yet but want to know if I have to order other parts to get it all working.  Thank you.

So what I have surmised so far from going through old threads that are still available is that there is no way to rig up the 38 using an all cable setup.  Is the IE weber 38 linkage kit what I need to revert back to the stock rod setup that is compatible with the rod linkage that is coming with the kit (that and an extra return spring)?

Yep, I don't see how you could use the cable setup from sidedrafts to operate the downdraft Weber carb.  IIRC the pull would be backwards; on the sidedrafts you pull up to open the throttle plates; on the downdraft, the rod is pulled down by the accelerator pedal link.

 

All the right pieces should be easily available from a parts car, as those parts rarely wear out.
