Modified Gas Pedal Lever
The original gas pedal to shaft and lever joint can became worn allowing initial gas pedal movement (play) that produces no lever movement.
In this solution, the problem joint on the gas pedal arm is now welded solid and the lever now clamps firmly between two class 10.9, M10 nuts. The shaft no longer has the locating double D flats, but the torque capabilities of the M10 nuts is more than ample to hold the lever in position.
Note the new lever with holes instead of a slot to simplify fabrication
