    Yes, the Duo Troll twist grip shaft & gear drive fits only the KE7 on the 10 H. P. range motors & will not fit the KF7 or KG7. I am looking for the latter which fits the KF & KG green tankers & they made two different ones &; I have just posted a picture on the JOM board under the wanted section.
    Thanks

    Ronald,
    I’m seeing your picture.
    Does the Vara-Speed only change the throttle position?

    HOPEFULLY I can get a picture of the Vara-Speed aftermarket Twist Throttle for the KF-KG & Mercury Green Tankers on this time that I am looking to purchase.

    Kerry, I have the one that you so kindly sent me that is indeed for the KE-4. It was made in Oshkosh and probably could fit a KG/KF but the instructions are for the KE-4. My original 1947 KE-4 does have that aftermarket rear handle. It is too bad that the KE-4 does not have much following as it is a sweet motor. I restored mine several years ago and did not get around to running it until two years ago. That was a mistake, as I love it. I took it to our Midwest chapter meet last year. Smooth easy starting quiet motor. Great fishing motor for immediately post war production.

    It is a great throttle and rear carrying handle. Only works with Bendix ignition. That is a great way to keep it setup.

    I was out looking at my KE4 after reading Louis’s KD4/KE4 post. Got to looking at the tiller and I was confused as it didn’t look like what I expected. Looking at the pic George posted I think I might have it figured out (maybe). Looks like it might be part of a twist throttle? I’m still confused about the hole on the flange at the base of the tiller (there’s one on both sides). Anyone know what they are for?
    Thanks for your help
