    I got the video on my Youtube, if you don't hear from me for a while they locked me up for something I didn't mean to happen.

    what you didn’t know is the throttle stuck right at the first mash so when I let go it started burning the tires and spun around. It was supposed to be a pedal tease and drive off. Not the whole burn.

    What's the wheelbase on your MG Mario? Guessing around 91"-92"??? Which is a bit longer than my Austin's 89" wheelbase. I never get into the throttle hard unless my Austin is pointed straight down the road. Tried it a couple times coming out of corners, and not what I like to happen. But once pointed straight it's a piece of cake, and easy to control.

    I took a minute while working from home to check the carb linkage on the MG. I noticed that in the first pic the lock collar was hitting the fuel inlet. Then it actually stuck behind it. I then noticed that the collar was not where it was supposed to be. It slid down a ways. I then moved it back in pic 2. And you can see in the 3rd pic it clears by a good distance when full throttle now. I tried calling edelbrock about another lock collar and they said Enderle injection produces the kits they sell. Enderle has not answered the phone yet. And yeah Lash I kept hearing your spring comment. It was relaxed and not much tension so I shortened the second carb spring so it pulls back quick now. Thanks for that. And again I did not get full throttle while that collar had moved thank god. Imagine if it was full when it stuck. Now where is that Costco diaper coupon.

    I looked on Amazon and I found a 5/16 collar for 1.97. After my credit it was 00. I think with prime delivery its a no brainer. I just got it Saturday so I put it on. I wanted a double insurance that the stuck pedal won't happen again. first pic is installed and second pic is wide open throttle. you can see the collar won't reach the fuel line again. accelerator pump is topped out at full throttle and missing the collar so it won't hit that for sure too. I will probably drill the shaft so the allen screw will set in further but I want to be sure it is in a good place first.

    Mario, can you turn the collar and lock setup straight down to get it even further away from the fuel line nut?
