0W2texan 2 years ago Just replaced a vertical shaft engine on a log splitter. Seems to match up perfect on specs except for the throttle. The new engine is designed for a lawnmower so throttle would be attached to a cable on handlebar. But obviously no handle bar on log splitter. What could we attach so we could regulate the throttle? The old engine had a lever that pulled back (choke position) to start and then moved into rabbit position to run with ability to speed up or slow down. Thoughts? Suggestions?
