I installed the cable today and it made my fuel pedal hard as hell to press down. I pulled it out, lubed it up with roller chain lube and it moves fine. I checked the lever on the tranny and it moves great. It seems like there is alot of tension from the spring on the cable. My question is, why wont it move freely when installed? thanks Josh

I have read and followed that write up. Which was very helpfull, but it still is very stiff. I forgot to add one thing, it is out of a truck with a 518. I did not think they were different, but are they? Josh
