Thread: Accelerator linkage

  1. #1

    Accelerator linkage

    I don't feel like I'm getting full throttle. What kind of travel should I have at the pedal? I just installed a fresh engine are there adjustments missed by the installer?

    answer my own question

    We discovered that the bushings in the pedal assembly were beyond wore out and that I had only 50% throttle. We replaced the bushings and worked backward to adjust the linkage to the motor. All is working well. Hint: If your hand throttle is not working you probably need to replace your bushings.

    Place a heavy stone on the pedal and check if your gross linkage and throttles are full open.

    Throttle linkage

    There are three areas to adjust the throttle linkage:
    - Next to pedal
    - Under car, on transaxle housing
    - Engine compartment, under-car link to crossbar.

    As stated in the previous messages, bushings should be in good condition. In addition, link angles are important to ensure proper throttle movement.
