Hand Throttle mechanism

Recommended Posts

My BT6 just missed our by 200 cars on the previously standard hand throttle mechanism.  Thinking I would like to fit one.  If there is one around that I could restore or use directly, I would be most interested.

 

EDIT:  I have luckily found one. However I still need the cable and knob is any around?

Thanks Merv

All the pieces seem to be coming together.  I would love to see a photo of the dash position for the B hand throttle knob?

I found a pic of the t5 and t6b the knob is to the right of the tacho. One of 3 on the dash.

Thanks for this.  I now have some RHD images from the UK.  As suspected they are a mirror image in terms of switch position of the LHD ones (above) and in the  RHD cars the hand throttle/fast idle switch is between the taco and combo gauge for the BT6

Nooo. That was how Jim Clark was killed. Cable operated throttle on the dash.
