Servo motor controls

Hello all, I am new to the forum and was hopping to be able to pick some brains about an idea I had using waterproof servo motors. What I am trying to accomplish is using servo motors to control the throttle and choke on a gasoline engine thats on a power unit in the bed of my truck. I would like to have it wired though, aka non wireless. I'd like to be able to control the servo motors with a toggle switch for easy adjustment of throttle and choke inside my truck cab. Also the servos I found are 6v and the system I have is 12v but I believe that is solved using a Bec. I hope someone can point me in the right direction!! Regards, Tom.

12V to 5V- you will need to use 7805 to get the voltage fit for the servo and the electronic card

with the use of 555 you can create circuit that will
1) send cmd to the servo to the position needed
2) toggle/pot switch to send the cmd you want

done in 5min if you need better exp' tell me
