1981 300D shifting

Dont know where else to post. I have searched and can't find anything similiar to my problem although I would bet its not unique to my 297,000+mile silver bullet.

When driving home in the afternoon (60 miles) she has a tendency to hang up when I take my foot off the pedal. At times feels like she is accelerating. When I tap the gas again she backs off. Just replaced the vacuum pump. Is it linkage or modulator?

thank

You found nothing? Here's what I found: W123 Forum Search Results: "throttle sticking."

The W123 Discussion Forum is a better place for your question.

As has been suggested to you before, you should complete your profile, including location, year and model. That information can be useful to those who might be inclined to offer you help as well as a matter of courtesy.
