Carter YF Carb Problem

I am having problems with my accelerator pedal not returning to the regular position when I take my foot off the gas. I think I have narrowed the problem down to something with my carb, but I am not sure what to do now. It seems like a spring or something isn't pulling the accelerator cable back to the original position. Has anyone else run across this and if so, is there an easy fix? Thanks.

I just got my cj5 same problem,

Anything you find out please let me know!!

This is my "quick" fix, just an gas pedal return spring about 3" long works, but not "correct" but works fine, i have an extra just in case

This bar is where the pedal and the carb link up to work, this just holds the pedal "IN" so when you let it go, it springs back to close the carb.

Maybe a bad throttle cable. My '75 did that so I put a return spring then it was too much for the cable and it snapped, Had to drive from Southern Cal to Pheonix using a string running from the carb to the inside of the jeep so I could pull the throttle open.

At least I'm not the only one that's done that - My F150 did it to me, at least the (ex)wife was there to shift for me while I'd steer and run the throttle.. Needed a 3rd hand sometimes.. lol

Mine mounts like this:


Look for the high lighted circle.

It mounts on one of the mounting boplts and goes to the throttle lever.

I've seen them mounted in the opposite direction also
