What’s the cable lever attached to the gearshift lever? Plow related?

    I think it might be a throttle cable. I seem to remember some serious off roaders using them so their feet could stay on the clutch and brake pedals.

    Both good thoughts. I don’t see an overdrive nor a governor and I can’t see the carb well enough to spot a secondary cable. I suppose this will remain a mystery.

    Taking a closer look, i’m inclined to agree with Mark. That cable has a handle that pivots while pulling or releasing the cable similar to what is on some lawn mowers whereas a cable operated overdrive would be a straight pull/push.

    I would say hand throttle, like Mark said, I had a buddy who did that to keep a constant throttle when wheeling.
