What do you guys think of this? Still need pedal and modulator if memory serves but a start for the price?

Make sure that the pedal and the control BOTH have the same air pressure rating.  If not you will either have no throttle or a wide open throttle during application.  The part number on the housing will tell you. Experience speaking here.

It really is the best to buy the control that is made for the DD 2 strokes it mounts on top of the governor housing no brackets to make or linkage to figure out fwiw

good luck

Don,
I just received a Williams Air Control foot treadle with the numbers (WM-453-B) on the body.  Two weeks ago I purchased the ebay listing of the modulator I will call it that mounts at the engine that is also mentioned in this thread above.  This is a very, very good looking modulator too I might add and the price is wonderful too.  I plan to get another just for kicks or in case needed on the road and have a spare for the price. The instructions for the modulator mounted on the engine says to use (60 psi) but I do not have any instructions for the foot treadle I just received today.  With the knowledge you now have in your opinion should I use a pressure regulator for 60 psi or use the full pressure to have control of the foot pedal for speed of the engine etc?  so with the information I have given you, would you recommend full air pressure of the 1/4" line or 60 PSI??  Also, would you run 3/8" or 1/4" line from the front of the bus to the back Governor modulator??
Thanks ahead of time
Gary
