you could try the pully but why dont you try using a heavy duty clutch cable say out of a 4x4 or small truck

If you braking cables I would switch to hydroliac or if you dont want to spend the money go with a chain ...On my street stock the pedel lays on the floor the the chain runs threw the floor board to the fork.. It a little stiff but works great ..

I used a hydraulic "pull type" slave cylinder and pedal setup for mine. I cut off about 1/2 inch of the fork on the end and welded on a bracket to hold the slave cylinder. Then made another bracket to mount the other end. Mine is attached to the floorboard but anywhere you have room would work. Has always worked fine. I have seen the hydraulic throw out bearings, but a guy at the track was having trouble with one and it was a major pain to bleed. That scared me away from that.

Speedway, JR Motorsports, and AFCO just to name a few. There are two different types of slave cylinders, a push type that goes on the block and a pull type you'll probably have to mount on your floorboard. I use the pull type. All I did was drill a hole thru the end of the clutch fork and weld a bracket to my floorboard to attach it to, then attach the hydraulic line. It's pretty simple.
