I could feel it's loose, but I'm a big guy and can't really lay down in the truck to get both hands in their let alone my head. Any ideas?

Resurrecting an old thread. I've found the slack and have the same symptoms as everyone else. I have not decided on the fix or just replace yet. My question is: with the fix or replace do I need to be concerned with the cruse cable which seems to be attached in the same place on the throttle lever.

thx

This has been an integral part of the Torqueflite transmission lineage since the first models. Early models used steel rods instead of cables. it is essential to the function of the transmission, and is adjustable (to a point) to tweak shift quality and and rpm. Ain't nothin' new.

I noticed this issue with my truck. I pulled the cable as tight as it would go and put in a spacer between the cable end stop and the acc pedal. Same result. Awesome power and response, the way it should be.

Wow! Mine had about 1-2" of play. I used the Bic pen method and zip ties, very responsive, more power, and it even is shifting better? How does THAT happen??
