Exclamation Engine revving regardless of throttle position - 19J

On my way home from the gym tonight my 19J started revving higher and higher even though my throttle was maybe 1/3 on. When I pull off the pedal the engine reacts as it should. But when I push on the accelerator it starts revving higher. This started in 4th gear, now affects all gears. Top speed seems to be 30MPHish, some slight acceleration but NOT nearly related to the sound coming from the engine. When I got home there was a burning smell from the car. No oil coming from the engine, slight oil from the gearbox filler cap, also from where the engine and gearbox, can't say if that was there or not.

19J 2.5 TD / LT77
1989 DEFENDER 110

P.S. Just changed the the master and slave cylinder and bleed the system, maybe one week ago. Ran out of fuel the other day, filled up and it started right up.

PSS - Sorry for miserable grammar.

Just replaced the cylinders did you? Did you leave some play at the pedal or take it up snug so your clutch never really releases?

As others have said pedal free play. If you dont have any the piston in the master cylinder will not let fluid back out into the reservoir and you end up pushing in a little bit more fluid each time you push the clutch. Did you put the spacer on the outside of the pedal tower when you put it back together? I found the new pushrod on mine wasnt threaded as far as the oringinal and i had to raise the pedal height to get enough freeplay. One of these days i will take it back out and thread the rod a bit further to give my long legs a little more room...( im 6' 4")
