    in the cab where the throttle cable connects to the pedal Is where mine had the most play, check to see if its slipped like halfway off the pedal, maybe depress the pedal and have it help down at full and then look at your injection pump to see how much throttle you are actually using possibly?

    It sounds like it's revving up a little slow but my phone speaker is kinda bad. Any smoke? Blue white black ?

    Yeah, bit of a delay there.
    How's it start?

    It starts about the same
    Started it the other day after sitting for 3 weeks at about 48 degrees and it sounded the same. The glow plugs appear to be working fine

    The throttle response appears to be sluggish though

    Could be an issue with your governor assembly in the pump. How long has it been doing this?

    When did you last change the fuel filter??? My wild ass guess (wag) is that probably is dirty and can't supply enough fuel to run any load on the engine like you mentioned.

    You say the throttle response is sluggish. Is it the engine which is sluggish, or is it actual truck movement? Try revving the engine by advancing the throttle from under the hood. That is to say, bypass the go-peddle and the throttle cable when you tell the engine to rev. This will help either prove or disprove the first step in the process.
