Re: WANTED: Hand Throttle for 1937 120

I had a throttle cable for one of my small engines that had seized up.

Hit it with a propane torch and heated up the shell, being careful not to go to far and damage the handle, then juiced it with ATF/Acetone while it was still good and warm. That got it loose. Then I weighted it down on the concrete with a couple of bricks and pressure washed it at close range. Got a metric crap-ton of rust out of the inside of the shell. Then soaked it again; haven't had any issues with it ten years later. It lives outside, undercover.
