Does it Idle in neutral, I'm sure it does...did you check your throttle wire assy sticking.Do you have the throttle lock set to tight.It should come back by it's self.

Hi, there You might check the push cable on the throttle , My 78 was really easy to pull but my push cable was stuck in the housing when it broke the throttle was really easy to pull but it wouldn't slow down. Hope this helps, David in Cal.
