Re: accelerator cable...
This happened to me on a road trip, soon enough my cable was frayed and just stuck it wide open at red line. for the highway it was fine, i stayed in fifth and let it do 80, but when i had to pull over it was a nightmare. I of course had to replace it, and did with another cable and its really easy. First get yourself a new cable, lube it on both ends of the housing spraying it in real well. Then disconnect your old one starting at the carb, it pops right out when you pull the throttle body foward. Then tackle the gas peddle where its attatched. now reverse your motions with the new cable, gas peddle first then carb. Make sure the cable at the carb is slightly slack or you will have a high idle all the time, if its too loose you will have poor throttle response and no top end on the highway, or hills. good luck.
