Center pull linkage questions (archive)

Got a new linkage kit from topend in the mail yesterday, my old cable had frayed dangerously because of how close I had mounted it to the throttle pedal (90 deg angle to cable entrance at idle).

Anyhow, it came w/ a centerpull assembly for the carb throttle arms. You know what i mean, the two pieces that mount together in the middle of the carbs and are adjustable there, completely removing the need for the overhead linkage components.

I'm wondering what the drawbacks and advantages are to this sort of linkage as opposed to the overhead arm style that I currently have. I'm tempted to try it. The cable brackets from topend will also adapt to my current setup so I should be able to run it either way.

Also, if I do convert to the centerpull linkage, what do I do about return springs? Thanks.
