    Mr Skully and the rest of the product line. Maybe I'll resurrect my old " Beverly Hillbillet" line of accessories.

    You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    The "go" pedal was a bit of a lark , then I thought about it a while.
    I have used several cable throttles as they are real problem solvers but I just don't love them. They have a street rod feel to them and if they hang up there is no positive way to suck back the throttle. I have always liked the Ford spoon pedal and the simple linkage that bolts to the firewall. It is mechanical and positive and seals the firewall from the engine bay.
    So , I began making molds and casting the parts needed to make my own version of the Ford spoon. I spent a couple days and nights making , refining , casting , recasting and machining.
    I came up with this...
    These are my pattern pieces 20200605_130955.jpg

    These are the castings

    Here's the assembly on the bench

    And here it is mounted in the model A. I will be making a different firewall so this one is just for trial and error purposes.

    So there you go , it started as a bit of a joke and turned into something useable. Typical me posting this on a Friday afternoon. It'll probably get buried . Oh well!

    I may not make it to Bonneville this year , they still have the border closed . If I do it will be a spur of the moment thing.

    Really nice parts! I especially love the pedal assembly. Do you use green sand or oil bonded sand in your castings?
    Nice work!

    I have been using petrobond sand. It gives pretty good detail and can be reused several times. It costs more but is easier to use.

    I use petrobond also and agree with you on the detail. What kind of oil do you use in your muller? I use 2 cycle oil.
