what do you mean "sticking" ? as in sticks in a position and doesn't return?

Yes its almost like it's holding the throttle position at about 4grand, but if you rev it it will go back to idle speeds.

Disconnect the cable and test if the throttle linkage is the issue, if not lubricate the cable..

Thanks for the advice I'll try that and see if it does the job. It doesn't help that it sat up for over ten years 😂

this bit of information should have been given right at the beginning!!!!.

lube cable, pedal pivots and check linkage.

GV2013, What, you no longer use the crystal ball???

:eek:
I assume you are meaning me, 2013GV, not some other impostor?

nope, its packed away in storage with my patience, understanding and the ability to mind read.

Now I just use sarcaustic (yes, it is spelled correctly, its the ability to strip many layers with a single word) nuances to guide people into the right direction.
