    Default throttle linkage sticking???

    I'm not sure of the problem - perhaps it is simply my throttle linkage sticking? Often when driving and hitting the accelerator, the engine revs up to maximum RPM's and won't decelerate when I take my foot off. I have to jump into neutral. The accelerator linkage looks ok - but it sticks.

    What should I be doing? It's definitely a safety hazard.

    Thanks for any advice

    Iím assuming your working on a M939? Check and lube the hinge pin on the accelerator pedal, they are notorious for freezing up with lack of use.

    Ditto on the above.

    After checking all the complicated stuff, I realized it was the pedal hinge itself sticking on my M931 (which was being driven regularly). Lube didn't help, the pedal ended up stuck solid.
    I replaced it with the pedal out a parts 1966 M35, bolted right in and it is still as free as it was new 50 years ago!
    If you don't have access to a spare, I imagine your pedal could be taken apart and refurbed. I didn't bother trying with mine.

    Cheers
