Accelerator Pedal Issues

Post by Cogita » Mon Oct 07, 2019 3:12 pm

Hi Guys

Please help.

I am having issues with my accelerator pedal. The Z/bar attached to the pedal does not engage the accelerator arm properly resulting in poor acceleration.

There is also loads of play in the pedal side to side.

Strip it out and put it on a table and check it out.
Without seeing, thinks the bushes are worn out. Not much in it besides the rods and bushes. Also check out where the assembly comes out the left side where the accelerator cable hooks up to the rod.......2 bolts into the tunnel through an oval assembly plate.

Don't always know the correct names,..but you should see it
