Print

OPERATION



The wide open throttle switch is attached to the base of the carburetor by a mounting bracket. It is a mechanically operated electrical switch that is controlled by the position of the throttle. When the throttle is placed in the wide-open position, a cam on the throttle shaft actuates the switch about 15 degrees before the wide-open position to indicate a full-throttle demand to the MCU.
