Hand Throttle?
Post by vrod02 on Nov 6, 2006, 11:41pm

Had a locking hand throttle on the M38. The 7 has to have this mod as well. Anybody done this? Its great for trail rides and warm up on cold days. It was the t handle that clicked to lock and turn to release.No sudden jerks to spill bev. of choice! ;D

Some 715's have the option. The t-handle connects to the accel pedal with a piece of chain.

If you live near a deuce bone yard you could probably mod one of them to do the job.

Another option, there's a guy I've wheeled around who uses a ten speed gear shifter (yes, from a bicycle) He used the handlebar clamp to mount it on his shifter...looks like it works pretty slick.

That's what I did (the bicycle shifter route). It works great and I actually use it more than I ever thought I would.

DP had an aircraft style hand throttle at the National FE a few months ago. He said he got it from NAPA. I really liked it.

Did the same on my CJ. Final connection to the carburetor linkage was done using a few inches of pull-chain (such that you'd have on your attic light) so I could hit the floor pedal to goose it and the chain would go limp. Still had to remember to pull the lever to get it to slow down though! It was just used for those slow, bouncy crawls over roots, rocks, etc., where it was hard to hold your foot still on the gas pedal. Total cost was something just over a dollar for a new cable. The rest was all junk-yard stuff.

I bought a locking one at napa a few years ago that I used for the shift cable on my quadratrac t-case. I used it instead of vacum power. It was not to much from what I can remember.

Re: Hand Throttle?
Post by brute4c on Nov 8, 2006, 9:53pm

Heres a few shots of mine:

A little to the left of straight on:
[image]
You can see the cable coming from the dash on the upper left back the the pin with the phillips screw right behind it...that is the setup...easy really to do....

Straight on:
[image]
The pin goes through the linkage arm and has a cotter pin to keep it from backing out...then the cable goes through the hole down the other end of the pin...the screw goes into a block that the cable passes through and is used to adjust the tension.


From the passenger side:
<*img src="http://www.m715zone.com/jonmisc/hand_throttle3.jpg" alt="[image] " border="0"/>
You ca see the mounting pin at the back and also the U shaped piece that goes on the pin and around the arm to mount the throttle cable to the carb.

Knob on dash:
