I have two 912s with the same problem: an excessive amount of slack in the gas pedal linkage. About 80-90% of the pedal is "freeplay", with only the last half inch or so actually affecting the carbs. I removed and reinstalled the throttle rod and shortened it as much as possible. This had no effect. What am I missing??

I am trying to find a throttle linkage cable for the 912E. It is out of production, and I cannot find one locally. If someone has one or knows where I might find one please let me know. Also, if anyone has modified this cable to the rod type linkage which the 911,912 356 has please let me know how you performed this modification. The car has been modified for Weber carbs. I am desparate to get the car running as I miss driving it.
