[DML] Re: Cruise Control & Throttle Cables

When I installed my cruise control I tried to figure out a way to prevent the 
possibilty of the cable falling off the spool but couldn't develop a viable 
solution so I opted to put the actuator in the bonnet and have it pull the gas 
pedal.  ... It works well that way.  If anyone would like more info please let 
me know.

I recently finished installing a cruise control unit...

I just finished installing cruise control.  On a long drive I 
had the throttle cable jump track.

I got to thinking, if I removed the return spring on gas pedal, shouldn't 
that help keep the pedal down & hence the throttle cable will stay taught in 
the spool groove/guide?  The throttle assembly on the engine has 3 different 
return springs already... how much more help can this 4th one be?

I figured that if I did this & then added some kind of extra guides on the 
spool, that I should be pretty much covered.  Am I overlooking something 
obvious?  Any insight from the group?
