'82 F-150 Accelerator Failure
First Post, Glad I found the place.
I got a pretty good deal from a friend and bought this 82 F-150 with a 302 and Holley 4 barrel. I hope to restore it bit by bit. It Runs great, starts without a hitch.
I do have a problem though, on my way home from work tonight the accelerator stopped working. Luckily it's not far from home.
I looked in my Haynes Repair Manual for some hints but couldn't find anything.
So, it still starts fine, and I can throttle fine (Via the carburetor) but pressing the accelerator does nothing I can see/feel.
One friend suggested a broken cable or linkage between the pedal and the The accelerator depresses and returns normally, it does not seem to be stuck.
Another suggested that it may be a clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump.
Any suggestions would be of great help
