    shut the engine off, jam it in first, start the engine. I'm sure thats not wonderful for the starter but if the engine runs decently it will catch and go pretty quickly. This was something built...

    I'm curious what the postmortem will show, but something was definitely not happy and causing a pressure loss. I just don't know transmission internals enough to have any reliable guess as to what.

    yes, but basically you set the cruise cable for no slack. Too tight and it will hold the throttle open at idle, too loose and it picks up speed when you set it.

    yeah there is some small gap between the face of the valve and the back of the pedal specified. I forget what it is, probably like 2 matchbooks thick or something.
