    Do the rest of the controls on the salter work? Is the throttle trying to go or is there no power there? We have run extra ground wires on all our salters. We ran a cable from one of the mount bolts on the motor to the frame of the truck.

    I just bought a new throttle motor for my Monroe. I had to buy one for my Air Flow a few years ago and the Monroe one was 1/2 the price. I think they are inter changeable. I know the clutch is and they are also 1/2 price.
