throttle cable to long/ weber throttle hookup issue

I upgraded to a weber 32/36 a few months back and ever since my throttle cable is too tight. It's not the cable since I tried 2 others. When i replaced the cable it seems too long now. since the hookup on a weber uses the original throttle linkage im a bit confused. I have to put a spacer on the gas pedal to pull out slack. It also seems too long so I almost need to coil it on the engine compartment. I ordered a new cable and I got the exact same cable and has the same issue. It will move smooth once off idle but sticks a bit when from a stop. If i disconnect the the cable all the linkage moved perfectly.

Has anyone experienced this while hooking up a weber? If so How did you resolve it? Is there a different cable that can be used or a different way to hook it up?
