  Description and Operation  


The throttle is controlled by an accelerator cable attached to the accelerator pedal and shaft. The accelerator pedal and shaft should travel smoothly from the idle to the wide open throttle positions. Hesitation on return or prevention of return to the idle position must not occur. Surrounding components such as wiring, hoses, sound insulator and floor carpet must not contact the sliding inner cable of the accelerator cable or the accelerator pedal and shaft. The throttle assembly is adjustable for free play. Refer to Cable Adjustment. See: Throttle Cable/Linkage\Adjustments
