I need a engine speed control to operate hydraulic motor on a 10k psi 40gpm triplex water pump. I need to have control of the engine and beable to set the rpm and maintain 1500 to 1800 engine rpms while running the triplex pump. will adding another switch by splicing into the dash switch work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Need to add a remote engine speed control on a control panel in a van box behind the truck cab. can i get a second cruz control switch and spice the wiring on the truck dash switch and route it to the back for a second engine rpm set control.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?
