Gem cable

#1

Do you have any of the cables/ switches available?

#2

What are you looking for?

#3

The cable setup for the Gem throttle conversion

#4

I have all the parts. Still in the testing stage.
You don’t really need a cable if you do it yourself.
The Saturn throttle seems to work as-is. Needing only to add a switch.
Depending on your ability and needs, I can supply what you need.
For example, you may only need to add the switch if your pot is still good.
I should make this public to help others.

Oh ok. I have the Saturn switch, I thought the cable was needed to adapt it over. Saw your other post with the soldering you did on the inside of the house. My pot traces were fried and I have some golf cart microswitches already

The pot part is wired correctly. Just plug it in.
Then wire a switch connected to the two switch wires.
Switch turns off at idle. On throughout stroke.

Just a tip. When you bolt the new pedal onto the new Saturn box, put the bolts in with the bolt head towards the drivers side and nuts on the passenger side. I did it the other way and after putting it all together, I found out the bolts were rubbing on the frame and the pedal didn’t move freely. Also a big thank you to Dave for the help. Mine’s working great, now on to some more mechanical work.

How about a report on the swap?
Internal mods or external switch?
Mechanical switch?
Pictures?

If making your own, I can sell the hall switch with bracket for $50 each.

3 wires to harness. Brown, Black, Blue from Gem harness at throttle.
Cut the “G” and “J” wires from throttle plug, as they go to a second pot inside.

This shows a custom harness. Cutting and splicing the wires works just as well.

I used a piece of 10ga. Steel and bent it over to make an L and attached it to the throttle mounting bolt. I used the timco switch you mentioned and made my own weatherpack wip since I have a big aversion to cutting the wiring harness( I got the hebe jeebies just looking at the diagram you posted of how to cut the wires… I know I’m OCD). I’ll try to remember to get pictures next time I’m at my garage - Just cut off one of my a arms because the bushings are bad. Hopefully I can source cheaper ones than the $15/piece ones from NEV since I need to do both upper and lower on both sides.

I agree, that’s why I made a harness. Too much work to market, so I think I’ll just sell the solid state switches and brackets.
Is your replacement throttle working?

#13

Yes everything seems to be working well but I’ve only put about 10 miles on it, other problems keep popping up. I’ve got a feeling I’m going to end up with a completely new car by the time I’m done.
