1988 Cabriolet

Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Bought a project '88 with manual transmission last month and have been slowly poking around trying to get everything operating properly before doing anything cosmetic. The accelerator was sticky and discovered the bushing in the pedal was gone and the cable was just wrapped around the loop. Got a new Gemo cable and Mk2 bushing installed, and no matter how I adjusted it, I couldn't get it driveable. After trying everything I could think of I decided the pedal must have been bent. I was able to bend it back by hand and everything seems to be fine.

1: Anyone ever seen this happen? Any chance I was off in my diagnosis?

2: Should I worry about this re-bending while driving? Not sure if this was a result of the accelerator cable being rigged up for who knows how long or what.

Thanks all,
