Hi buggy on & off road with silly niggles but when it works I am loving it. Quick question is there supposed to be any kind of clip or bracket behind the throttle pedal because mine comes completely forward leaving only a wheel for my foot to go on. If that makes sense. Cheers Deb

There is supposed to be a little spring to hold the flat peddle down on the little wheel. It goes on the pin that the flat peddle hinges on, a bit like a cloths peg spring if you get what I mean :D If you have a supply of rubber bands off your post man, like most of us do! you can put one round the peddle and arm to hold it together ;-)up

some pedals also had the metal tab on the bottom that hit the floor to stop the falling back experience, As Rob says a butterfly spring is used pull the pedal pin out align spring and refit the pin.

Deb.... Was going through my bit`s boxes for what must be the thousandth time and came across this. It`s the spring you are missing. It is a new unused repoduction part. I will not need this so if you would like the spring, (and there is nothing wrong with using an elastic band), you can have this. Dead simple to fit to a standard pedal. Message me your address if it`s of any use to you.

Deb... I only have internet via laptop and Sky Yahoo Mail has become so unfit for purpose. I receceived your mail and think I have managed to reply but not certain. If not don`t worry. Will have the spring in the post to you in a standard envelope.  ;-)up

Hi Paul
You seem to have mastered email and you are better than me at posting pics. Yes had your p.m. Thanks a lot for your info and it was not too technical for me.
Cheers Deb
