Bendix Throttle Problems

I am trying to assist a close friend with a 40 foot diesel diesel pusher with a Bendix throttle control. The air operated system will not return to idle at times. Added extra return spring for more return tension but some time it requires me to manually force the throttle to idle and then the coach will go into gear. Other times it takes GREAT break pressure to over come the engine torque (due to throttle not returning to idle). Any ideas, links, posts or suggestions.

It has been to a few dealers and it seems few people know much about the Bendix system.

Are there any throtle control systems to replace this defunk system? If so do you have contact information?

I suggest you contact Jon at : Brazel's RV Centralia Washington
