    I'm sure you can find one on here somewhere... I don't know if I have mine anymore... I'll have a look around and let you know

    just make sure you get good quality parts.... it took me a few months and many different levers and parts to make it work properly...

    The closer you get to a waterproof push/pull control cable, the easier it will be to make the whole thing work for you year-round. The single wire style throttle cable style used for things like lawn mowers and snow blowers is cheap and will work for a while, but is prone to seizing from rust. Bicycle brake cable is pull only, so your design should include a spring on the other end to pull it back.

    Princess Auto has some push/pull control cables in their hydraulic section that looked like a good deal - they have a knob & bulkhead connection at one end and a 1/4 " threaded shaft on the other (an overkill strength wise, but a lot cheaper than the thinner marine or truck/forklift style).

    When you add a heavy duty control cable to the cast aluminum shift fork, keep in mind that it was made for a light force ONLY for engagement (the vacuum motor doesn't apply much force, just a steady pressure until you started to move and the gears would line up and engage) & if you try to strong-arm it into place, it'll break. You can get a cast iron fork, but it still won't help it engage those straight cut gears - they have to line up.
