Picked up some linkage from the yard this morning.

this compact item comes from a volvo...has a build-in return spring:




also grabbed some additional mercedes brackets and linkage which should provide some options towards my conversion:

well, here's what I came up with:







I believe I used one of the brackets associated w/the cruise-control.

will be adding a stop to the skinny peddle to limit the throw...but seems to operate nicely

Why didn't you just connect it directly to the ball on the main lever?

Because cables have a hard time pushing, but they excell at pulling!!

And this was easy for him to do in a few minutes, not to mention it works just fine.

Fucking retard
