TOPIC: WTB Keller crash throttle for Merc & Hydro

WTB Keller crash throttle for Merc & Hydro 4 months 2 weeks ago #132586

I'm on the hunt for a Keller crash throttle that mounts on the inside edge of the cockpit.
Any help in locating one would be greatly appreciated.

I need an education on this. I will be attending the national antique outboard motor show in a Month in Tomahawk Wisconsin. If I saw a few pictures and you told me what to look for, I would do my best to hunt one down for you. There are many hydros there running deadman throttle an maybe one or more vendors may have what you are looking for. I got to see a Quincy looper run with the 6 horn exhaust. Sound and rpm is pretty cool. Let me know.

Thanks Dr Go,...I have located a late model crash throttle by Keller.
I have attached a picture of what I have been hunting for. I snagged the picture off of craigslist.

Glad you found one Doc. I was thinking it would look like that since they run lots of vintage hydros and I have seen some in parts stacks. Love hearing and watching hydros run...from old little motors, 25ss, konigs, 4 cylinder mercs, up to 6 cylinder quincy loopers with 6 exhaust horns and a razor blade prop. They are enjoyably loud! Can't wait. Not many places have a Dairy Queen with a dock and paved walk up so you can refresh as you cruise your glassic!

The one I have is a later model one.
I'm on the hunt for a '50s vintage one.
I would be interested in seeing yours.
Please post a picture, or send me a PM.

Here are a couple shots of it, looks like it has been remodeled to use a pipe pull handle.

Mike,
Thanks for posting the pictures.
That is the style I'm after for sure, but I see that a section has been cut off.
I'm hoping to find one that hasn't been altered.
Maybe others will see this one, and find one for me at one of the upcoming shows with vendors peddling vintage goodies.
If someone is planning on going to these shows, please send me a PM, so I can share my phone number so I won't end up with several being purchased for me.

Keller throttles haven't changed much over the last 60 years. If you have one, use it! Black crinkle paint can make it like new again.

Thanks for replying Scott.
I tried to email you, but it must not have survived cyber-space.
I'm hoping to find one that was originally wrinkle red, and has "KELLER" Seattle on the grip - like the one shown in this thread.
I have a black one with Keller on a small square boss, and think it must be a later model.
Do you know?
Thanks,
doc

Okay. I have seen red ones, but never noticed the different placement of the logo and place name. Atwood also made red crinkle throttles. Had one in a boat years back...

You are seriously DAH MAN Dr.Go!
Thank you so-o-o-o very much for working the cyber-space magic for me!!!
All of the crash throttle images you sent me were exciting indeed!!
I truly LOVE all the other examples you sent me, but I love the early 'Keller' you snagged for the ole doctor.

No problem. And likewise you finding me a faceplate that completed my rig. Just think back of all of the pavement pounding it took to find stuff before cyberspace. I appreciate all that you and others do on this site. This site helps the next to impossible become possible more often than not. Cheers for Fiberglassics and it's members!

. Last picture just for fun. The old Keller was the last one I found at the last vendor table at the end that I missed first time around. I was loosing faith and then somehow the stars aligned. Kind of crazy now that I think about it. Fun place to go. One guy about 84 is still running his side by side runabout going almost his age in mph! Saw lots of pictures of him and his brother in it. He started racing in mid 60's He said he has his racing hydro for sale on e-bay right now so I need to check that out. Alcohol and big pipes out the back. I posted a few pictures under main forum Tomahawk. His has all the hoses coming from that gas tank.
