Throttle linkage help on my "84" 300SD

Hi,
When I bought my 84 300SD, The throttle linkage was tweaked by the previous owner, the nuts on the linkage were loose, so I tightened them but I am not sure that it is correct, it is very hard to push to the floor from 1/2 throttle on.
Anyway,is there a book that shows the measurement of each throttle links length?

I do not know if it makes a difference or not, but this car is a Cali. car, with OUT the trap oxidizer.

Does anyone have a motor manual they want to sell?

Thank You ahead of time!

There are several adjustments, which, if you recall, of the nuts were loose?

Pics?

The one from the IP and the one that goes across to the valve cover. I was hoping that someone had all the linkage measurements, so I could get them all adjusted properly.

I believe the solution is a replacement of the rubber bushing around the frame portion of the linkage on top of the valve cover. I have that same friction point about halfway down the throttle and it makes my cruise very unhappy.

In more reading of the manual it looks like there are 2 bushings....on of them joins the pushrod. this should be fun.
