[DML] Re: High !dle 3000 RPM!

Check to see if the throttle cable unwound and is not "in the groove"
on the throttle spool. Could happen if the throttle linkage needs
lubrication and you took your foot off the gas too fast or you were
messing around with the trhottle on the motor. The cable could also
have come out of the adjustable ferrule by the throttle spool.

couldn't find anything wrong that I could see on the engine.  The
accelerator cable came all the way back to the idle position, still
3000-3500 RPM.  I had to drive it about 15 miles and it wasn't fun
when I had to stop.  I resorted to shutting it off at lights.

idle but that was only like 700-900 RPM and not often.
