His engine is definitely much closer to the firewall than in my pictures. I would not file or grind anything just yet. It's got to be something we are just not seeing.

Any radiator repair shop should be able to help, you may have to get some brackets fabricated so that
they can be soldered on.

As a matter of interest BMW motorcycle accessory plugs will fit this socket

And in the "almost full idle" position the gas pedal lever gets stuck against the upper edge of the hole in the firewall and will not go to "full idle position" .

Well, obviously the brackets holding the cross-shaft to firewall, #8 and 9, are swapped, but this is the mistake of the drawing, I guess.

I also assume that you did not install the gas pedal lever upside down - that would be crazy as you would have it sticking up inside, in the footwell.

I also assume you tried to see if you can screw the driver's side bracket a bit lower, as it may have the screw holes a bit bigger than the screw diameter and I assume it is not the head of the upper bolt holding this bracket high. So there is no way to tighten this bracket lower.

Then I cannot think of anything else than one of the levers is bent i n a bit wrong way or the lever that is fixed to the shaft turned a bit on it.

I would probably try very unprofessionally to: try to file the holes in the driver's side bracket to tighten it lower or try to shimm it if it helps or bend one of the levers back in place.

I am very curious what is the correct solution here.

Here are 4 photos of the regulating shaft that may clear up what is lacking in previous posts:

Photo1 -this shows the regulating shaft on the passenger side and its clearance from the firewall when it is NOT connected to the pedal lever and bolt  #51 is removed. The clearance from the firewall is approx. 3-5 mm. The gas pedal and pedal lever are in the position of being at full idle and the result is that the threaded hole where bolt #51 is supposed to attach to the pedal lever is in such a position that the bolt can not be secured.

Photo2 - this shows the regulating shaft on the drivers side where it is would connect to the pedal lever and as noted above - bolt #51 can not be secured to the pedal lever.

Photo3 -  this shows the regulating shaft on the passenger side and its clearance from the firewall when it connects to the pedal lever and bolt  #51 is secured at the top of the slotted opening  .The clearance from the firewall is approx. 30mm. When in this position the gas pedal and pedal lever are in the position of being at full idle and bolt #51 can be connected to the pedal lever. 

Photo4 - this shows the regulating shaft on the drivers side where it connects to the pedal lever and as noted above - bolt #51 is secured at the top of the slotted opening.

Hope these help. jz

background: our '67 230Sl went to a local "show" last night and on the way home (only 4 miles) it stalled a couple times at stop lights and stumbled during part throttle acceleration.  It seemed to run well at full throttle.  I've had some of this type of behavior very sporadically before but nothing this severe and it always went away quickly - maybe 2 times in the last 6 months.  I also have what I'd call hard shifting - the car is an automatic.   


I've read the tech and Joe's great post here, but before I dive in I'd like others comments and suggestions on how to diagnose this problem.  In my experience this could be either a fuel delivery problem or an ignition problem so I may want to perform some other diagnostics - especially since I'm a novice when it comes to the Bosch FI system.
