good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

did you remove the cable before removing the trans??? it sounds like you need to adjust the cable for throttle pressure

I did and then hooked it back up like it was.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 8 months ago.

ok, it most likely came out of adjustment. you will need to change the adjustment lift up on the clip that holds the adjustment and push the cable in 2 clicks. then try it and see if it got better. you may have to play with it a couple of times until it gets back to normal

Did the pic show up for you?
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 8 months ago.

yep, got it

wow there is a lot on that bracket. remove the cable from the carb. use a pair of pliers and depress the 2 tabs holding the cable to the bracket. then you can remove the cable out the back side and you will see where to make the adjustment.

nothing seems moveable after I take it out of the bracket.
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 8 months ago.

the part that sticks out to the side, there is a tab you push in the the cable will move back and forth in the housing of the cable. it is there
