I had a chance to review the wiring diagram and it appears that the 
throttle switch will have to remain active. However, if I install a 
momentary contact push button switch in series with the throttle switch 
I can select to disengage the OD at a stop light or sign without bliping 
the throttle. Anyone have thoughts on this or has anyone installed such 
a switch?
