Basically, I'm looking for details on the drive setup, as far as parts go.
rex, after looking long and hard for alternate ideas, i just went ahead and got the hallman evo rx.
work exactly as promised? yes.
i had thought about using a speedometer drive cable to provide torque to any old ball/spring mbc, but the issue with those is that they are not really designed to be twisted both ways. i did not want rotational compliance making me guess how much i had actually turned the screw in the mbc. then of course you have the issue of mounting it, etc.
i know that hallman does make a retrofit kit for their mbcs so that they can be remote-ized. you could probably get one of those if you really like your current mbc. if not, i can heartily recommend their mbc. the rx has the ceramic ball, and it makes the tightest internal seal i've seen yet on ball and springs. by comparison the joe-p was a tinkertoy.
