That is the same concern I have. Not being able to "feel" the repsponse.

Maybe more help will come with this topic.

Thanks,

Paul

Paul, I would definitely recommend against an air throttle for a stick shift tranny. I tried one vehicle that had air and manual and I never could get the shifts proper. And I have been double clutching since the 40's so I really think I know how to do it. LOL

Paul,  back when I was driving/instructing on 4905's, GM changed from cable to air throttle.  The two coaches purchased the first year were virtually impossible to shift.  When I was instructing, I made sure to never use those two coaches - if I couldn't shift them, I certainly couldn't try to teach others to do so.

Never quite understood why, but it seemed to be the engine losing RPM's too rapidly.  Air throttles on later year coaches were better, but they didn't have the feel available through the cable throttle.  Based on my experience, I would not consider putting an air throttle on our 4107.  As much as I'd like to ease the pressure (sore leg) from the throttle return spring, I wouldn't want to be unable to shift my own bus.

OK, cable or rebuild the linkage is what I will do. I do appreciate all the help from everyone!

Now on with the show.

Thanks again,

Happy Trails,

Paul
