Hi Troops,
I broke a throttle cable a while back on my 1990 4018 and found out some things that I didn't know.
1. 4000 and possibly 3000 series tractors have a throttle lever that has a full throttle detent.
2. The throttle lever assembly has a 1/4" rivet so a 1/4" bolt and locknut can be installed to have adjustable throttle friction. Where the rivet is peened, the plate has a 3/16" hole which needs to be drilled to 1/4" before the bolt can be installed.
3. Adjust the throttle cable at full throttle on both the lever and engine so the detent can be utilized. Make this adjustment where the cable casing is secured to the engine. Idle position will be where it happens to be.
4. The new egg shaped choke and throttle knobs have a removable end. This can be carefully pryed off and using pliers, the retaining clip can be removed to release the rest of the knob. nice to know that they can be reused.

Move here, Bob! If anyone says you "talk funny" I'll just tell 'em your from PA. :grin:
We even have some good MR clubs I can show you. No G scale though, too hard to model a blast furnace that size. :sidelaugh:
Bring the bagpipes, I'll even get you in the parade in July! Har Har!

I`m assuming Bob is hoping for winter to end, not an impending departure from CT.
Could be wrong though, he may be planning to wreck the quality of life and demographics of a neighboring state.

Looks like I may have misinterpreted what he wrote. :facepalm:
I don't believe he would wreck the quality of life here, but having a New Englander among us could wreck the Appalachian-transplant demographics of my town. That and the whole Scottish culture thing, what would all the Germans, Swedes and Fins think? :sidelaugh:

As an Ohio German, I am manning the borders against Bob`s potential arrival / invasion.

Proper ordinance at the ready :razz:

Randy,
You have to stop being such a sour kraut all the time. :sidelaugh: It's not the Scot's I object to per se' but rather the ones who insist on squeezing their bag and making that horrid sound. :sidelaugh:

For the information of Ohians, I have invaded Oh-ten on many occasions by air, vehicle, and rail and never have I observed anyone with their canon cocked and ready. However if I had my druthers, I would prefer to reside in Ohio or western, PA as I like trains and you all have lots of them and mixed in with great tractors of course!!!!! OHMPAPA!!!!!
Bear in mind that " In the beginning, God created Scotsmen in his likeness and Haggus for their enjoyment!!! " All the rest are clones!!!! HarHardeeHarrHarr!!!! :sidelaugh: :headscratcher: :sidelaugh: :usa: :winterrules: :clap: :mrgreen: :lol:

Having been married to a German/Irish girl for almost farty forr years I am well aware of having my "bag" squeezed figuretively speaking of course!!!! But she knows well that this Scotsman always has his Sabre and his Cannon nearby and ready to put to use in a heart beat and of course several consealed distructive devices in his Kilt should there be a snag in the sheath or a missfire of the cannon!!!!
However " yes dear " usually prevents war!!! But an occasional " war " is necessary to clear the battle field. I just oiled the Sabre and cleaned the " Cannon " in preparation for dawns engagement!!!!!!
Mad Mackie who while in the military used Ohio " targets " during missile drills!!!!!
Mad Mackie studied "Mademoiselle" and "Frauline" while playing as a USA soldier!!!!

If you bring any of that haggis with you, I'll go and BUY a cannon and aim it at every Econoline that passes by just for safe measure. I just looked it up and it sounds worse than scrapple, and I have to draw the line at goetta. :mrgreen:

Sounds like you're missing out of two of life's greatest delicacies. Say something bad about single malt whiskey and the Scots will rise to run you out of town on a coaster. :drinkbuddies:

Scrapple is also well known in Delaware, not just Pa. We even have an "Apple-Scrapple" Festival every summer in Bridgeville. Bridgeville is the Home of Rapa scrapple and the Smith's orchards. Whole town is blocked off and it's just one big block party. Very family friendly, Ya'll need to stop in this summer. Maybe a GT show is needed along with the car show! :usa:

I can honestly say I don't know the first thing about single malt whiskey, but if you guys want to bring some I'll be glad to give it a try. :drinkbuddies: '
