Can you disconnect the throttle cable at the pump end and hang it up and run oil down it for an hour or two so it gets through. Just check all the linkages for free movement and nothing is stuck under the peddle.
Are we there yet????? Huh

I did the above and it can help.... I also re routed the cable within the engine bay to give a less tortuous route for the cable and this returned smoothness and sensitivity to my throttle pedal.
