Throttle lock not locking

My 84 aspy has a throttle lock, not actual cruise. I think it's by Vista cruz. It doesn't really work. I tried adjusting it a bit, but nothing really helps. I can push the cam lever down, but it doesn't lock into place. Any ideas what I may be doing wrong? Thanks

I had one on my 1200, if I remember correctly, I had to take the screw out and put a small washer on to tighten it up more.

It's a tension thing for sure. I've had a couple Vistas over the years and it was a bit of a trick to get the clamping tension right so it would hold the throttle firmly. I never needed to use washers like 'tank mentioned but I can see how that would come in handy.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
