112 accelerator won't budge
« on: May 12, 2011, 19:02:46 »
my 1964 300se gas pedal won't budge
i parked the car in november, everything was fine, now it won't accellerate. pedal stuck.
i lubed all the linkage under the hood, but nothing, i see some kind of selonoid near the engine block,
wonder if it has something to do with that.
Please Help!
thankyou

I don't know that much about these engines. But try disconnecting the linkage ends to the components until you find the component(s) that are stuck. The injection pump may be stuck as well.

Hello,

You may want to check to see if you are now getting full throttle.  With engine off push the accelerator to the floor and have someone look to make sure that the venturi is all the way open.
