Sorry, Phil....I forgot you have one of those (pfffttt.....) Bluebirds with the T-handle high idle, pull to stop lever, etc. I test drove a TC2000 like that with all the t-handles. It started right up, got out the snow, and drove great. We didn't run into a problem until we got back to UTB and we couldn't get it to shut down. We pulled the lever, but with a broken cable it wasn't very effective
I kinda like my Ford....turn the key to start it, turn the key to turn it off....simple as that.
