switch pitch controller

Postby slkalo » Fri Apr 17, 2020 8:41 am

I am looking to see if the switch pitch electronic controller is still available. I remember info a while ago but not anything specific about purchase of one.

By "controller" do you mean the switch on the firewall or the solenoid inside the transmission? Thanks, Bob.

Someone built a modern controller, as I remember, Bruce Roe? I am looking to avoid building something myself.

Yes, Bruce Roe has converted his Switch Pitch trannys to use later model components. Look him up on this website and send him an email.

slkalo,

You're talking about replacing the manual switch with the lever attached to the carburetor, right?

Bruce eliminates that altogether and actually gets better performance from the switch pitch with the conversion.

He just posted on here yesterday so he'll probably see your message. Send PM or email.
