    Hi all, l have recently bought a second hand Jeff Gosling Hand control for the van. Unfortunatley there are no instructions on how to fit it and l am struggling to work out how to connect the accelerator pedal to the sort of wire cable. The brake assembly is pretty straight forward as is just a push to stop, but how to push the accelerator pedal down has me flummoxed. Anyone got any pics. or diagrams that may help. Thankyou.

    Does it push the pedal or work on the throttle linkage?, just a thought....
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    Hi Dave, Its a push - pull type with a solid lever to push down on the brake that is easy enough but the accelerator is like a pedal connection with a sort of like a bicycle cable which you cant pull up on because obviousely it has to push down to accelerate. Thanks,Pat

    In that case then I would have thought that it either has to curve around behind & below the accelerator pedal & then pulls it downwards , or, ifthe pedal has an upper part which is past the pivot point it could pull on that part from above.
