PostSubject: Gas Pedal??   Thu Jul 03, 2014 12:49 am

I have a foot throttle control welded up on the foot rest of my mower. its a brake lever from a bicycle and it has the conduit with the wire inside and the throttle that is on the dash hooks up with a lil metal rod with a bend in it. im wondering how to hook up the bicycle conduit so I can work the throttle with the bicycle lever on my foot rest. I really want to throttle with my foot. thank guys

did you want it to be with the dash lever AND the foot petal? what kind of engine is it? i have a way for both opposed twins AND single cylinder. with the single cylinder you can have the lever with it. let me know.

Some inspiration for you. My pedal is different but the principles are the same. http://www.atltf.com/t2700-adding-a-gas-pedal-my-way

I want just the foot pedal. I do have a return spring for when I let off the pedal it returns the throttle block to the idle position so that's not a problem. My problem is the thing that hooks to the throttle block is metal rod and it just hooks into the side. The bicycle conduit has the wire and I have no idea how to hook it to the throttle block so I can control the throttle with the foot pedal?

Look at the thread I posted the link to above. The answer lies within.

LOL. I ain't gonna steer you wrong.
You can get a "universal bicycle brake cable kit" at Walmart and various other places, containing about 5' of cable, the flex conduit, and a couple ends. That's what I usually use.

If you want something stronger, look for the parking brake cables with housings for things like later model isuzu amigos, and such.

Indeed! I use surplus automotive parking brake cables when I'm setting up cable-op brakes on go karts and stuff. Bulletproof. Honestly, overkill for a throttle, tho- the cable is so thick and heavy, I think it would cause throttle problems. At the very least, you'd need some SERIOUS return springs!

I had the thought because I am thinking about using one for the brakes on the WHAMS.
