Yep His cart is coming together nice..... the belt should be here in a day or 2 . But we are still having trouble with this little billet throttle lever billet ...... is this what everybody is using? Can you take at look at this? It installs over the orig. throttle lever and reverses the action....but it is dang small and the braided cable wants to bind in it.... far from ideal ! What else is out there for this application? Thanks in advance

did you look really close at the pictures from frank? It will bind if a strand separated from the main cable when you put it through the small hole for the cable. I had to cut mine twice to get it right. I have run a variety of springs to try and get the tension right. you have to use the little bolt and nut that came with the arm. it will tighten on the cable and still rotate in the hole

I could not get it to move freely in the arm, it would bind on the cable. I dunno, I need to pick up a new cable cauz i cut mine to short trying to fix it, I dont know it just seems like something that could break or come off 5miles away from the Truck & Trailer, I just dont feel to confident with that set up, r u running the cable in the bottom hole or top,

I was running it in the top and then switched it to the bottom hole to get more travel.

the only issue I have ever had in the 9 months I have had it was when I sucked the cable down into the drive belt.
