Hey Andy,

I had thought about doing that, but I see you beat me to it. You can be the guinea pig and let me know how it turns out. I had also thought of using a Morse cable, and that's where my thinking process stopped. ;)

How much air do you need to actuate it?

Good luck!

Well accordning to The Bus Guru I run about 30 to 40 # When I get it mounted and do the fine tunning I will let you know. Iam going to put a regulater in the line by the peddle to make the adjustment. Wish me luck :lol:

OK, you're in good hands. Good Luck! :D

One more thing. On mine it takes a while for the air to build, meaning a few minutes, in the mean time one has no throttle. I'm not sure but I think our idle rpm's are a little low. What is yours at an idle?
