Had a brown trouser moment on the way home from work today. When I pushed in the clutch to change up to 4th gear, the engine started to over rev and was scream like a banshee. I immediately let the clutch back out and got on the brakes. Getting desperate I tried to blip the throttle and noticed there was no resistance on the peddle. The friggin accelerator cable had stuck open. I kicked at the peddle and couple times and it released its self, thankfully.
I pulled over and had a good look at everything and it all appeared normal. The rest of the drive home was VERY slow. Once home I pulled the cable and found it was binding up in the sheath. I have cleaned and lubed the cable and it seems to be working well now, but I think I had best get a new one ordered. Rovers North only lists a RHD one that I could find. I suspect that would be too short for a LHD truck.
