Hand Throttle Help
Oh, I had it! It was sweet, a nice new bright chrome lever, with a cable running through the shift boot on the four-wheel drive stick. I figured the T-4 had way too much travel, so I’d work off the short shifter of the 4-x stick. Checked the cable length, tighten’er all down and started her up. AHHH…the idle I worked for sooooo long for. Right at 500 RPM! Jeep in Neutral 2 wheel drive, now 4 high…. and ease the lever forward…. OHHH idling at 1500 RPM off the lever. Back her to 500 and into 4 low! Ease the lever forward…. WHAT THE…SON OF A…but where’s the sweet sound…? Cables tight, fitting tight, too much slack in 4 low!
All right Fellas, how did you over come this one? I searched the board…real straightforward…Are you running the hand throttle off the dash? Through the dash? Is yours on the sticks? Which one? How do you compensate for shifting? Don’t hold back on me now…any help is greatly appreciated!!
