Heavy throttle on 202 with trip SUs

Hi all

I have a mild red 202 with triple 1 3/4 SUs. My acceletor pedal is extremely heavy getting off idle. Feels light enough once Im moving. I believe it relates to manifold vacuum but how do I resolve?

My setup is not uncommon. Im hoping someone has had this problem and worked out a nice solution. Im keen for ideas.
Thanks

what oil are you using in the pots ??
common mistake is putting engine oil in them that makes them heavy
i used only light machine oil in mine when i ran twins yrs ago
also the slides could be gummed up causing it to be heavy

Sewing machine oil for sure, but I've often seen dex 3 auto trans fluid used.

I'd rather drive my old holden than a new ford!
