    I have not seen this, and have no idea how you would do this, other than finding a top cover from a Toyota four-speed tranny that was configured to be controled by linkage opposed to a direct-shift system..if such an animal even exists...



    Good luck!

    Mark, of Mark's Off Road, has been designing a 4 speed column shift. So far, he has keep the details secret, although he has hinted that he has made good progress. ;)

    and for my next trick, I will convert my Hazard knob into triggering a nitrous oxide bottle.

    As stated above my need for a aux throttle control is only when winching or inflating my tires when coming off road.
    also not wishing to mess with the TBI connection, a simple tapered wooden wedge slipped between the throttle stop and the cable adjuster works fine. It hangs on a string hooked over the headlight switch.:confused:

    Heron, You could go with a Vernier Cable which allows you to set the RPM by pulling up on the knob, fine adjust the RPM and the quick release by pressing the knob back down. I have mine attached to my transmission shifter. I use mine for setting a higher RPM when winching or inflating tires.
