[QUOTE]Never did hear of a cheater bar being called a "Johnson Bar" however. /QUOTE]
Might be based on an old steam railroad term. The bar that is moved to change the period of time the steam valves to the locomotives cylinders are open, and to change which cylinders (left or right) get steam first (allowing the locomotive to run in reverse) is often called a Johnson Bar. I think we've got a locomotive engineer (Choo Choo Man?) on here. Maybe he can relate.
