interesting idea .. never seen one used ... you would need to measure your own f/r switch and adapt it .. do you know where you will mount it and how you will power it ? also where would mount the actuator switch ?

Low buck I thought of using a couple of lock actuators out of old 70s cars (or maybe something more common like older model ford truck) if you can get them, or even some of the choke actuators from smaller outboards. Put them on a lever to increase travel if you need to, they are instant, not sure how many one would need to make enough power. Could also use an electric motor with a lever on it, momentary switch. The linear ones are pretty slow, at least the ones I saw used on boats were. Car parts are common you can boneyard for them cheap so no big loss if they don't work, and power locks are fast.
