sticky throtle

ok i have looked everywhere cant find any info. so here goes when i go to accelerate my throttle likes to hang up, or that's what it feels like it. works if i push hard but it causes the whole vehicle to jerk and i cant get any smoothness out of it. the cable moves freely and everything on the outside of the carb seems to be fine. so I'm at a loss any help would be great as I'm out of ideas. (yes its a carter and no i dont have the money to change it to efi or a Weber and it idles smooth and has the nutter conversion)

some say why i say
its a jeep thing u wouldn't understand

so the cable moves nice and free, does the mechanism on the carb move nice and free? next i'd check the pedal itself, maybe its binding or rusty on the pivot.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

the pedal could also be worn at the pivot point.

ok i'll check the pivot point today, i sprayed the living crap out of the throttle mechanism and it helped a little. was funny it actually made the idle go up by two hundred so i'm not sure if that is the prob. but i'm thinking that the pedal is the culprit

Just wanted to add, the reason for using two throttle springs: in case one breaks!
