Hi Trent - Here's a pic of the installation of the Long V-gate shifter for left-hand operation in the RMR I built in 2009. The thin red arrow shows the forward cable mount. As you can see, I used clevises (clevi? rolleyes) to attach the 1/4" Morse cables to the shifter, requiring a bushing and a few shims(each).

The cables pass through tubes in the rear firewall (calked with fireproof clay) to the trans. Attachment at the trans should be self-explanitory.

Sorry it took so long to respond.

Our hero Jack Kelley used a system with Morse(-type) cable with a regular 4-speed gated car shifter with no problems -- at least that was the case last reported.  I'd think using a pattern that you were familiar with would be a great help at speed.

Sumner still has shots of that setup on his web page. Very clean. The Long shifter I am using is not an H pattern, just front to rear and back for the 5 gears.
