Replaced my cable pulls with threaded rod

Got tired of dealing with those flush valve cable pulls. So yesterday spend four hours under the 3910, ripped out all the cable pulls and put easy simple threaded rod pulls on both of the black and both of the gray tanks. Cut the old valves out, installed new ones,,forced to reroute some plumbing, and now I have four flush valves easy to operate and which will be easy for gasket replacement if necessary in the future. Had to relocate the pull handle locations, so have some holes in the convenience center and back pull location to plug up, and main bath black tank pull handle had to be relocated to door side of the rig.

Great idea. I have had nothing but trouble with my black cable and valve.
Replaced the cable once, valve twice.
Sounds like something I need to do. Got any pics or tips on how to tackle the process?

Did not take pictures, and underbelly back up. Tips, just cut out the old ones and start over with new valves and threaded rod extension kits. Each floorplan is different. Tricky part is figuring out your plumbing rerouting, and placement of the valves for easy pull locations. Figure that out before you go to Lowes. I had to make runs to Lowes twice before I got it right. On my rig, the front underbelly was easy to drop and reinstall. The back underbelly was not, so I cut a big square cutting only three sides, to get access, and then sealed up with black gorilla tape.
