Type of Incident
:

While cruising at 1100′ AGL I lost throttle. I called my emergency responce teem(the wife)and told her where I was going down. After a rough landing in sage brush and a short exam of the throttle linkage, this is what I found. The small brass fitting on the carb that the throttle cable attachs to had worn through at the carb linkage. The brass fitting was still attached to the throttle cable. Its one part that I never inspected!!
