Hey....I have an 89 Sammy and my old throttle cable was fraying at the firewall by the black cap. I replaced the cable and it worked fine for a short time. It became more and more "sticky" the more I stepped on the gas until it felt like it would literally snap almost feels like the cable is "grinding" somewhere. I thought it might be a defective cable so I replaced it a second time. It worked fine for a short time too. Now this one is getting harder and harder to use too. The pedal is fine...spring etc. no binding. The carb seems to be okay too....can use hand to turn accelerator manually. What could be causing it to bind up?? Seemed okay prior to replacing old cable...no binding...just sticky due to fraying wires...not retracting quickly from the broken strands. Carb is new 6 mos. Tranny replaced last week...works fine. Can't figure this out for the life of me.
