I'm not sure

of the levers orientation.
Forward or reverse for acceleration.
I will have to look at that as I put it in the car.

Do you find it easier to pull back quickly to release your throttle?
Is that what I am hearing in your last post?

I hadn't thought of that either.
I am certain there are issues I will need to work out.
The first one being if the unit I have is still usable.
I found it 2 weeks ago while cleaning the garage.
Covered in dust and looking like a relic from the past.
In its cardboard and plastic bubble packaging it appears to be fine.
But in my garage for 8 years it may be rusted solid.

I'll post pics and detail when I am done.
