    The accelerator pedal on my 1965 Lincoln sticks in full speed position if I touch it too hard. Is there a way to fix this?   Thanks!

    Two things you should look at :

    1.) The throttle return spring.  Make sure it’s not too weak and replace or add an additional spring if necessary.

    2.) Motor mount(s) – especially the drivers side mount.  If it’s bad under hard acceleration the engine can lift enough that the throttle will hang.

    Good luck!

    Resistance is Futile.
