Bouncing Throttle

With only 7 hours on the clock the bouncing throttle was driving me nuts. The 2X4 trick didn't appeal to me and the pedal extensions didn't trip my trigger either. The next step was to make something to rest my foot against for stability while giving me the abilty to slide the foot down for the smile factor.

The 5/16 rod gives the side of my foot support to stop bouncing up and down on the pedal, but its angle allows my foot to slide down easily.

Nice.

I took the easy way out with the pedal extensions and having my foot against the tunnel for support. Not nearly as cool or home made as yours.

Thanks, I prefer to make my own stuff if I can. I have a decent sized shop at the house with lots of toys and scrap metal to tinker with.

That extension looks good and does match the brake pedal

I replaced the the gas lever spring with a spring from a 1983 F150 carburetor and Tah-Dah! My jerkiness went away!!!
So maybe people should start looking at replacing the spring!

The spring on the left is the OEM spring and the one on the right is my "fashioned" spring, like it was really hard to tell the difference.

Had a chance to get out for a couple hours this evening and that little foot rest worked great. Ran it across some whoopti-doos, rough rock strewn hills and washboard roads and the bouncing issue is solved.

I like what you have done, could you give the measurements and a material list? I probably have everything in the polebarn to build this, did you bolt it all the way through the floor pan? any help would be appreciated, thanks.
