Sample text

Pulling on the knob for the flexible cable increases the engine speed and releasing the pressure drops the revs. Usually this device is located somewhere beside the steering column on the right-hand side down near the bottom edge of the dash. Some cables pull out, locking in any desired position when the cable knob is rotated; some pull out and notch into place in several preset positions. One type works by winding the knob out like a screw thread, and can be slow-acting, even though it is exactly adjustable.

Physical limitations Four-wheel driving can be enjoyable and a real mental challenge at the same time. It can also be physically very tough on your body. Backing any vehicle, especially one with a boat trailer or caravan attached, usually means difficult twisting around in your seat, which places quite a strain on your back and neck. Lifting a heavy 4WD spare wheel back onto its mounting, or jerrycans full of fuel onto the roof-rack, can also be physically difficult.

The speed will be kept down largely by engine compression alone, although light braking might be needed to help keep it slow. Going back downhill, there is no real load on the motor, other than it being in gear and holding the vehicle against the slope of the hill. Remember to turn the air-conditioning off if your vehicle has it fitted, in case the idle-up solenoid slightly increases the engine revs. Any form of rev increase could become very difficult to handle in that situation. During starting and moving with the engine controlling the vehicle, as in this case, do not touch the accelerator and do not touch the clutch.
