Throttle Control "covers"

Post by Lucky7 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 10:18 am

Hello Everyone,

I have a recently purchased 1989 10.8 International. As you can see from the picture below the throttle "covers" (not sure what you call them) are old, stained and falling off. I tried searching for new ones but can't seem to find anything. Was wondering if anyone has found a good source for this or if it would be better to just make a new one myself out of gasket material. I was actually looking for one that covers the entire opening better ... like the bristles on a paint brush.

Thanks in advance,
Ron

Thank you. I checked his web site but I didn't actually call him. I can try that. Thanks.
