Second lever on throttle?

Hi,

Just bought my first rib, but am slightly naive as to what the second lever is on the throttle? Didn't ask the previous owner as didn't notice until I got it home!

Any ideas? I've never seen one like it before:

It might be a friction adjustment perhaps, to allow you to set the desired stiffness in terms of how easy th leaver is to pull.

nope I was wrong, its a 'fast idle lever for user friendly operation' or so the manual says online.

Thanks.. I love this site! Next question, how would someone advise sorting out this mess? At some point in time the steering system has been replaced (badly). How can I refill/cover these holes and replace the damaged plastic collar?

My quick/temporary answer to this same issue was to cut a ring of stainless steel plate to cover the holes until I could sort it out properly.
It's sandwiched between the helm pump and dash and can just be seen in this image.

Many years later.........

There is nothing more permanent than a temporary repair,

I cut the stainless steel myself from a sheet I had in my workshop using a jigsaw and finished it off with a hand file.

The centre is mainly removed, but has holes for the bolts holding the helm pump in place so they clamp it between the pump and dash.
