On my Eagle 10 the throttle cable is sticking.  The pedal will not return to normal position.  From the back of the coach everything works fine.  How is the best way to lubricate the cable?

There are 4 grease points on the linkage behind the coolant crossover (Front of engine, toward rear of bus)
There are two points on each of the little towers. These are not easy to get to but with a flexible gun nozzle you will reach them. After you do this a few times, you will remote them to an easier access.
I find these need greasing more often than the rest of the bus.

Joe everything is fine at the engine I can move the throttle linkage at the rear and they return to the normal position.  The problem I am having is with the throttle pedal.  If you push it to the floor it will not return to the normal position.

Personally- would change to air throttle.  I have it on my bus and has a light pedal pressure.  Very reliable (crew boats use them) and if you have a manual transmission, the slight delay can be compensated for, in other words, you'd learn how to use it.  Good Luck, TomC

Thanks:  I found the problem it was the very bottom pin on the Morris pedal next to the floor.  Either dirt or the aluminum oxidized but a lot of PB Blaster solved the problem but taking the pedal assembly out and putting back in was a B***h for an old fellow.
