Do a search, this has been done here before. I bought all my stuff at the bike shop for around $8.50 and it is easy to install. Oh, and <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> Newbie.

I've got a write up on mine at www.cascadecrawlers.com in the toyota tech section. Attach cable to gas pedal arm.

Administration still hasn't got the pics up yet, but drop me a line if the text doesn't explain it right. Here's some pics.

I've got a crawler in the truck now, so I moved the throttle lever back to the second lever so now it is really easy to reach and operate, even when leaning out of the truck. idle speed can be set with either barrel adjuster, or by sticking a screwdriver under the lever (if you want it really high.)

For rigs with EFI, why bother with a cable? On my 86 I just simply bypassed air pass the throttle plate. Just make sure it is metered through the air flowmeter so the mix doesn't go lean. Worked great on my truck.

Just get a manual choke conversion kit for a carbeurator. Comes with a cable, bracket, etc., and connect it with the regular throttle cable.
