Spark / throttle contols

Hello again and thanks very much to all who answered my previous question regarding body -to - frame welting. This time I'm seeking information regarding the Spark/Throttle controls. I have the levers at the top and bottom of the steering wheel but am a bit confused as to the Spark linkage. My parts book lists a control tube with a bracket which I assume bolts to the firewall but what does the linkage look like that connects this cross-over tube to the bottom of the steering column? Any pics or advice would be greatly appreciated !!

Re: Spark / throttle contols

I took some pictures of the linkage on my 25 Star. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send them on to you.
