Probably not! Figuring it out as you build can be a nightmare, yes?

Well
 At long last I have steering for the waterbug.
 Still needs adjusting and cable tightening.
 I'll get some pics and maybe a Video up this week.

Working on the accelerator. On a VW motor single carburetor the butterfly leavers need about 3" of movement.
 I'm trying to use the thumb leaver off the snowmobile or maybe the brake lever but they only give me about an inch
 of movement. I have tried serval "Bell crank" set ups with out any luck.
 Finally, I think I'm on the right track. It's a leaver and pully set up to Pull from the back of the butterfly linkage.
 If I use the long part of the leaver to actuate the butterfly and WAY down near the bottom for the thumb leaver cable.
 I Think I will need to use the hand brake leaver to get enough leverage to open it with only one hand.
 Now I have to think of a way to mount the cable to the motor somehow/ somewhere .
 It's been a few weeks of trial and error . I need to get past this and start the trailer.

Sounds like you are getting down to the nitty-gritty of it. All these final details seem to take forever, but take the time to get them right and you may never have to touch it again.
