I own an 83 cj and while its running the accelerator is very hard to press at a point past that its fine, or while the engine isn't running? any suggestions?
I think you need to check the entire length of the throttle cable for kinks or binding spots. Especially check where it goes through the firewall. If you have kink, replace it - better safe than sorry. If it seems OK, use some white lithium grease to lube all of the spots you can. Also hit the pedal pivit points, basically any part that has to move when you use the go-juice.

I am goignto have to agree with CJeep you need to check the whole cable. Like he said better safe than sorry especially if the throttle decides to stick open and races you down the highway when you are trying to stop. Use the grease in the easy reach palaces but if you want to lube the inside as well spray some WD 40 on it and put a couple drops of oil and let it works its way through

for some reason when the engine is running the throttle linkage at the carb gets very tight, but if I could change the angle of the linkage I think I can remedy this problem. Or if I could keep the linkage from tightening up.thank you for your input.
