agreed easiest to get the cables in place prior to fitting carbs into manifolds, affords maneuverability.
Opening the throttle with fingers using the gold, circular cable guide (between the carbs) gets access to the rear slot (can't remember whether push or pull) Get each cable *end* located in its respective slot before pulling and final location in the gold holder. Start with the cable adjusters set at maximum freeplay (to ease pulling and locating) and when in place, adjust accordingly. Note you MUST leave a few mm of outer cable freeplay....you are looking for free "snapback" at the throttle assuring throttle plates are fully closing. Use and adjust freeplay to achieve both throttle snapback and adequate freeplay at the throttle.
Undoubtedly actually easier to do than to type/explain (as my above rambling would indicate)
