Controlling RPMs with external remote?
I'm looking to install a Zena alternator welder on my 2001 powerstroke in the dual alternator location. If you are unfamiliar with the Zena welder, they have a button on the stinger that activates the welder and causes the truck engine to idle up to welding speed. A vacuum operated actuator is usually used to control the throttle, or to push directly on the accelerator pedal in the case of electronic pedal vehicles. I'm not a big fan of linking stuff into the accelerator pedal, and it seems like on a computer operated vehicle, there should be a way to control the engine RPM digitally. If my math is correct, in order to weld, I need to be able to hold the RPM's at 2000 plus RPM. I know that you can get tuners with high idle tunes, or the PTO/ RPM controls, but is it possible to be able to control either of those via a remote switch?
