HZ Clutch Issue - Rat Trap/Half and Half/Cable?

I am doing an engine swap in a few weeks (202 red for another less dying one) and the clutch has seen better days so I thought I should throw a new one at it while I have the engine out, but I need to make sure to get the right type of clutch (push or pull).
I'm having trouble trying to figure out what my clutch setup is. I've been doing as much research and reading as I can but all I've been able to figure out is that they switched to full cable halfway through the HZ run, which is right when my car was built (Dec '78).
The issue I have is that my car was converted to 4 on the floor from 3 in the tree at some stage and I don't have a contact for the person who did the conversion. I'm not sure which of the three setups I have and I can't seem to find any easy way of identifying between them. How do I tell which type I have? I'm not sure if I'm missing something really simple or not. Most of the Holden mates I've asked have no idea as they are auto drivers.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

Is it cable operated, mechanical or hydraulic?

Cable is pull type and mechanical and hydraulic are push type.

Post a photo of the mechanism on the bellhousing if you are unsure what type you have.

Definitely not hydraulic. I'm guessing it will be either full cable or Half/Half. I'll try to get a decent picture when I get home.
