Use a PTO cable from a tractor supply instead of the whimy lawn mower cable that comes with the kit. The heavy cable always works to engage and disengage. The light weight one requires getting under the vehicle to "help" it engage, if there is any rust on the unit.
X2. And, the little mickey mouse clips that Remco provides don't properly hold the cable sheathing. Why was it always muddy or raining when mine would **** out?

Default Towing my 1969 Buick "sleeper" with 600hp engine/12 bolt posi.

Hi Folks,
Just going a different way than most, will see how it turns out. Bought the Remco driveshaft disconnect from Randy for my Buick.
The shop where my Buick is at in MN, is installing original NMW tow tabs that were removed from A 1970 Chevelle.
NMW made the tow tabs (plates) for racers that could not afford a trailer or on the east coast, did not have room for a trailer.
Now a days, some of the guys with muscle cars are installing them for the look.

http://www.chevelles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=406522

In my case, they will be used with the Blue Ox tow bars (6500) to tow behind the 87FC.
Now i may have to install a little more support between the tabs, the NMW tow bar was a fixed triangular setup.
Will go with the tractor PTO cable for the Remco disconnect, good idea!
Bruce
