throttle cable

idle is jumping by itself while driving only occasionally. throttle cable
was stretched so we tightened it (rigged) still had problem checked cable
a few days later and even more stretched any ideas what might be causing
this. i was told cable might be frayed. to replace it but i'm worried
something else might be wrong no lights are coming on.

Not that it matters or anything but is this a 2004 or a 1965 version.

And how about REPLACING the freakin' cable and seeing if that fixes it before
coming on here!

Shheeeesh... as if webtv wasnt bad enuff!

Okay, now make sure the throttle plate (manifold) moves freely when you
disconnect bith the accel and cruise cables. if it does, look at the pedal
linkage/rod itself
