Broke my gas pedal
 
1 Attachment(s)
So i was pumping the gas pedal to start my 77 scout II and all of a sudden the pedal goes limp, so of course my first instinct is to open the hood and check the throttle cable. That didnt really help because the throttle cable is in a rubber sleeve so even if it is broken it gonna be hard to be able to tell if its even broken, so before i go out and buy a new throttle cable i decide to look down at the peddle and i find this (Pic below) I kinda laughed because its kinda funny. I'm an engineer but for the army so im not that smart, anyone know how to take the accelerator channel off before i go out and drop $180 on the entire assembly from scout parts

Your on an IHPA forum why would you ever mention scout parts?

IHPA and other LL dealers sell an upgraded accelerator channel assembly.

This is a common problem. I welded a 16 Ga plate in the back of mine where they normally crack to prevent this.

As already mentioned we have the replacement parts for under $60.

To remove the gas pedal, remove the 'E' clip from the old pedal, slide the pedal over and out it will come. I have circled the clip from your picture. Reverse this procedure to install the new pedal.

It's a pre-fabbed failure point. Thin wall tubing with a comparatively large diameter hole punched through both sides for a pivot point, plus corrosion, plus repetitive stressful motion many times over. A little re-enforcement in that area could go a long way, but the engineers in Ft. Wayne never expected these things to still be on the road 40-50 years after they built 'em. Good thing replacements can be had at a reasonable price.

They ship UPS. Are you saying you NEVER order anything that arrives UPS or FEDEX to a physical address? I'd have a tough time buying that one.

I've only been here for about 3 months and i just got this P.O. Box about 3 weeks ago, it never occurred to me that UPS and FedEx cant send stuff there. I'd like to use use my physical address but no one can tell me where the mail room is, all i know is its not in my building or the company which doesnt make any sense at all

Call or email our sales staff as we will ship to a post office box. Our online store is set up not to ship to post office boxes to avoid fraudulent orders from being made.

so i got the new pedal and its bent plus I'm missing the throttle cable snap and I'm a bit confused because in the package there's 2 pieces of paper and one says report any problems in 72 hours and the other says 48, if its 48 I'm screwed because i got this package on Saturday and they're closed on the weekends

That's business hours. Nothing can be done over a weekend or holiday. The bend might be intentional. If not, they'll make it right, but I don't see it affecting function at all. I think it is assumed the you reuse your cable clip. They have new ones if that's no longer an option. Get ahold of them on Monday to resolve.
