So I have isolated the problem to the throttle bracket. Does anyone know if I'm missing a spring? The carb returns just fine when the linkage is disconnected, so I think I may be missing a spring but its not obvious because I don't remember seeing one before. Anybody see a problem here?
Wes, that looks like the transmission kick down connection (I don't have a 999 auto) so I'm guessing. Post a picture of the carb linkage, on the carb. That's were the spring will be. You might just need to lube all the pivot points.

Well, I took the kickdown bracket apart. The swing part of the bracket swang freely so I put it back together and it worked fine. Must have been some mud, dirt, or fishing line hung up in there, idk, but its free now.
