throttle valve cable

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 couldnt imagine them to be different because the are basically the same tranny but you might be better off replacing it with a new cable. apparently age does effect the quality of them. Im actually looking at replacing mine with a new one from cummins because my pedal is a nightmare to hold after 60mph.

Also consider this....
it doesnt hurt to measure it but i wouldnt think so... I havent done the mod quite yet.
