couple of small observations.
1) installed to new cable last night. it is a great fit length wise and I routed it the exact same way I did the old ffr cable. and also couldnt believe how much less effort it takes to push the pedal in. I took it for a drive last night and shifted in and out of gears very nicely.

2) I was able to achieve the dimes width space between the white plastic flange and the firewall adjuster by pulling out the cable away from the firewall. the only downside is at the fork side the adjustment is at its end and at the firewall the adjuster is very close to being all the way out also. but if nothing stretches than im good.

one thing I noticed is while driving, as i up shift into different gears the rpm seems to go up in between shifts, and to idle down I have to tap the gas pedal, then all is fine. is this clutch related? accelerator cable seems fine, no binding anywhere. carbed engine no other issues with it

thanks guys
