Hi Tony

Not sure to be honest - I thought it was a hot foot but it looks different to the pics ive seen online. Think the spring would be the same though??

Attached a pic of mine

Thanks

Looks like a Argo Weld Throttle, Dunno If Wally is still running but he was @

Nice fella, very helpful.
I'd go with a Bungee though, easier to change the return rate over a spring
