  • StefanA created a new forum post in MGF/TF Pitstop
    Okay, my first question!

    I haven't driven my F very much since I got it (repairs needed), but what I instantly noticed is that the throttle pedal is very stubborn, heavy to push down with your foot. On my daily drive (Volvo V70) I just rest my foot on the pedal, revs go up, clutch up and away you go. But on the F revs doesn't go up since I don't press the pedal down and the engine stops...

    Made a quick test, jammed the cam open on the throttle body and pedal got very light, so my first thought was that the return spring on the throttle body is too tight, but adjusting that seems a bit strange.

    So, is what I experience a sticky throttle? And how do I sort it? Lubricate it somehow? I'd rather not replace the whole thing since it's a LHD and after some searching I found that it's a pig of a job to get the cable loose from the pedal.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated!

    My story with MG started before I was born actually, with my father getting himself a -53 TD which he fitted with a Corsair engine and rear axle off a MGB. I grew up thinking everyone had an MG in their garage..? 🤔

    Fast forward to early September of last year and I found myself getting an MGF! It's been sitting for two years, so it didn't pass our version of MOT (surprise surprise) but that I knew beforehand. Right rear brake caliper seized, pretty rusty brake discs all around and so on. During the checks they found rusty brake lines and that I need to replace the front right lower arm as well.

    Brakes are getting sorted slowly but steadily, I keep searching for parts and wondering why the heck I had to fall for MG? Not very common here so I have to get most of the parts from the UK and the shipping of heavy packages to Sweden... Ouch.

    But I keep tinkering away, hoping that I will get it through the MOT before the summer is over. Until then I will most probably post a ton of questions here about all sorts of problems that I keep stumbling upon... :)
