So I posted this in my thread about "What's missing from my accelerator linkage" but I want to record it here as well. If you already saw it in the other thread, I apologize for wasting your time.
Betsy came to me without a gas pedal. (sounds like the opening of a dime novel). Anyway, I didn't know what the gas pedal linkage was supposed to look like, and the diagram in the Parts Catalog was pretty small. But others on here straightened me out, and Ray (raytasch) actually sent me the needed parts to correct it. You rock Ray!
The existing broken spring was packed with dirt, so it didn't resemble a spring to me. But I sprayed some WD-40 on it and cleaned it up enough to find an end to pull on. So
Out with the old and in with the new. The pedal's far enough off the floor to put a new boot on it now.
Here are the before and after pics...

And I took her out for a drive today with my new dog Riley riding shotgun... No pics, my hands were full.
