Russ isn't telling you what you should really do with your donor gas pedal (I guess he's being modest). You need to toss it and buy his pedal ( Russ's Garage ). Russ's pedal fixes everything that is wrong with the donor gas pedal setup. I messed with my donor pedal for quite a while before I gave up and bought Russ's pedal. Works great!
I bought one of Russ's pedals too. It definitley makes a big difference. If you dont want to spring for it, I have a stock pedal I will sell you cheap. I dont remember it having a spring though. I can check and get back to you if you want to go this route. I would like to get $20 to your door. I still suggest getting the Russ pedal. I think they are having another 3 day sale in the beginning of December. Maybe you could get it at a discount...Hell, ask for it for Xmas!! Good Luck
