Back in the fall, when the truck’s gas pedal first had a problem, I was shocked to find everything except chewing gum connecting the linkage. Check out this picture: zip ties, strung, key loop.
I fixed the first failure back then, but never got around to cleaning up the rest.
I’m not proud to say that I found myself yesterday under there with some wire adding to this sculpture after another linkage failed. Oh well… time for an appointment with the mechanic.
