The throttle lever pinch bolt has probably slipped, Rich. There is an adjustment procedure in the workshop manual for setting clearance. I’ll send that to you in a separate email.
I recently changed the exhaust manifolds on my BJ8 and had to disconnect the lever for access. When I got it back together, it worked fine until I was about 250 miles from home, then I suddenly felt the same symptoms you are having. I loosened the pinch bolt and rotated the throttle lever a bit, and problem solved (actually, the pedal was a little TOO sensitive). I did the final adjustment procedure when I got home.

The gas pedal on my BJ8 has to travel about 1 1/2 inches before the engine responds with increased rpms. Is there some way of adjusting it so that the engine responds instantly to depressing the pedal? Thanks for any suggestions.
