1966 mark 10 Gas pedal sticking

Hi

Gas pedal free, but when starting up, the pedal sticks?
The idling feels high and not helped when gas pedal sticks, need to slide foot under the pedal to bring it back.

Also, the boot will not open! The latch to pull has no movement. Is there another method to open?

Thanks in advance

When I put HS8 carbs on my MK2 ,I used the MK2 pedal linkage , the Butterfly’s would not close 100% , even after adding a stronger spring , so I bolted a Y braket facing upwards and added another spring , they snap shut now .
Before I had to dab the pedal at traffic lights or the like , or the revs would not lower enough .
Works so well its still like it :blush:
