    1997 slt 780

    I just aquired a 1997 SLT 780 brought it out and ran it, was fine first 15 minutes then throttle stuck wide open, the linkage rod going to the (I believe) oil pump is real hard to move almost frozen, I had to grab the rod and strain to get the throttle valves to clase back, the cables are fine and move freely, any idea on a fix?

    Change the oil pump, service the oil pump, or remove the pump and go premix.

    I prefer the last idea.
