I was out and about in the Bluebird the other night and coming onto the freeway I ran it through the gears to get up to freeway speed. As I let off The gas pedal went stiff as a board to actuate, it had been butter smooth until that instance.
I looked at all the recently lubed ball joints in the gas feed and they were all Ok . Nothing broken or out of place, same with all the smaller pieces. 'I could not figure it out......

This evening I looked at the pedal itself and saw that the ball on the pedal that affixes to the lever had broken out of the pedal ring. That appears to be the reason of the stiff pedal response. Changed the geometry a bit and thus is stiffer.

I'll get a new one ASAP.
