What is the correct way - that is how was it done originally, to route all of the control cables on a "C" Comet?

The brake and carb cables are obvious however I am very uncertain as to how to correctly route the clutch and decompressor cables. Exactly how should they be positioned?

also see photo - looks like both clutch and lifter cable rout down UFM left side - period cables were much more flexible and fragile.
the wire harness goes over top of F106, see two fuel hose go to a "Y" banjo, oil line going up to valves, spark wire John Bull attached to oil line. Also see - Comet pages at
