Yeah we are west of milton I think 3 or so hours if I recall so they are "local" for sure ... don't relaly "need" a new knob but will keep it in mind if I want to replace it.
Next time I am up at the property I will show what is actuated with the knob being pushed forward vs back from the side it is on. When I first saw the knob beforing having it on site and starting it myself I wondered about if it simpily moved existing pinion controls as well. I will make a note to grab some basic video and some measurements which might be usefult to know.
If you have an opportunity, could you video both the operation of the various levers as you first push the control in to brake the pinion, and then pull it all the way out to engage it.

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
