Jacobsen Throttle Linkage Sloppy


New Member
So i have a Jacobsen 1996 utility cart, its running, ( smokes a little )...but all the throttle linkage from the gas pedal to the carburetor and governer spring is sloppy. I see the linkage ends are adjustable, should the mini heim joints have less slack? Do i loosen the lock nut and twist the center rod untill the slack goes away?


If the throttle is opening and closing all the way the free play is fine. If the throttle isn't opening all the way you can adjust the heim joints just make sure the throttle still closes all the way.
