I guess you've made sure there isn't a carpet mat under the pedal?

Maybe the pedal axle/support is worn?

I guess you've got the end of the cable connected to the brass ball that is closest to the throttle axis? And the cable is connected to the part of the support bracket nearest to this brass ball? In other words, it's not where a cruise control cable would be if there was one?
