Gas pedal catch

Ok, this is is a weird one. My gas pedal has a catch to it just off idle. Really annoying as it makes car lurch from a stop.  I thought it was the cable, so I replaced that. No improvement. Disconnect the cable and pedal operates smoothly. No interference with air cleaner. Suggestions?

Throttle plates sticking in the bore ??? try cleaning first , check idle speed screw if backed out and not contacting throttle plate lever it will do that also.


Check carb gasket to intake. Found an interference issue with my Quick Fuels 750 as the gasket intrude on the manifold opening.
