+1 on Art's kit......  especially seeing as I'm the guy who got him to make 
the first one! It's probably the easiest to do with the engine in place. The 
bushings are made from Delrin which basically lasts forever and the design 
insures nothing will every fall apart. You can see how it's installed here: 

Another cause of a sticky throttle is the carb linkage so here's how I clean 
and lube it: http://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/ControlRod.htm

I used the bushing replacement kit provided by Art Lipp. Hist email is
lipp04 at yahoo.com. Not sure how hard to do with engine in place.
