I have a 69 Camaro 327, 210 hp, w/Powerglide. The 2 bbl carb has been rebuilt and works great. The problem is that when I accelerate from a stop,the accelerator seems to stick for a second or two even if I take my foot off the pedal. It does not do it all the time and I can't make it do it when I operate the throttle by hand. It seems to be more of a problem when I am making a left hand turn but I'm not sure of that. I checked the return springs and they are great. Could this be something to do with a kick down from the trans or what? How do I remedy it?
Check for a worn or broken engine mount on the driver side. When you step on the gas the engine wants to lift on the driver side and if the mount is bad it can bind the throttle linkage. I'm thinking maybe turning is exagerating the problem a little...

I was thinking check the spot the throttle cable goes thru the firewall to the right of the steering collum. There might be an old owner that routed wires thru there. Cant figure how turns would make a difference there unless the dangle goes and gets the wires more in the way of the cable during turns.
Classic motor mount failure.
can be tested by opening the hood, apply the parking brake very firmly, put it in gear and slip the clutch like you are taking off from a stop, or if you have an auto trans put in gear and apply throttle. do this out on the street or driveway with a safe distance in front of you, just in case the car moves.
Watch for engine movement up on the drivers side, you can see the engine with the hood up while sitting in the driver's seat.
Replace the mount with an interlocking type mount for safety.
