writeup:: hand throttle for dummies

heres a nice mod that cost me nothing but an hour to do.

-materials-
shifter from a mountain bike
bolt, 2 nuts, 2 washers
drill bits, 1/4, 1/8

-tools-
drill press
wrenches

-step 1-
the first thing i did after taking the gear shifter off my moms bike was mount it to the my shifter. to do this i had to use electrical tape to widen the shaft a little.



-step 2-
once mounted i ran the linkage down the shaft an into the rubber boot. from underneath i brought it out of the way and ziptied it down.


the bracket on my engine that connects the gas pedal linkage to the carb had a spot to connect another linkage. i took advantage of this and made a bolt that would hold the end of the cable housing and allow the cable to move freely through it to the other end of the bracket.


-step 3-
to do this i drilled a 1/4" hole into the head of the bolt and a 1/8" hold the rest of the way through. then just bolted it up to the bracket. the cable on mine wasnt long enough to reach the other end of the bracket and i had to extend it a bit.

and there you have it.

Pretty neat setup. My CJ also has a hand throttle, but it's mounted on the dash as a pull out. It's great for any rough or muddy spots in a manual jeep. One less thing for your feet to have to do.

she said i couldnt use it, obviously, but i did anyway. haha. i guess ill get hell this spring when she realizes.

got to use the hand throttle already. i have been doing some engine work the past couple days and i guess i have knocked the carb out of wack and it needs adjusted. didnt realize it until i was on my way to work and it kept wanting to die when i let off the fuel, so i bumped up the hand throttle a bit to keep my rmps up at idle.

thats sweet. did you get it stuck or was it there when you bought it. i found a wrench stuck on a bolt way up under the dash behind the glove box. who knows how long its been there and how many owners have found it and tried to remove it.
