Re: throttle return

Is a return spring hooked to accelerator pedal itself (wraps around
brake booster connecting rod). Try turning it one more time.

spring is already on the second setting. I tried lubing the linkage...
still the throttle will stick at about 1100-1400 rpm's after the car
has been driven. I can revv the engine and it will get enough momentum
to make the throttle arm return all the way. What should I do? Is a
new throttle spool spring an option? Obviously I need more tension.
