If you find there is something you can't do or get to work post it here.
I am new at this, so things may not be set up the way they should be.
I will respond as quickly as possible, so hang on.
I am happy to receive ideas for other categories etc.

Try the bus depot, below is a link to the part you probably need they call it an accelerator cable.
You should be able to by these new from an auto parts dealer.
You should ask for a accelerator cable for a 1984 VW rabbit.
I assume you have the automatic transmission in which case as burnt toast has said you will need to specify the pedal to transmission cable or the transmission to fuel injector cable. If for some reason you are having difficulty finding these parts, I did find several used ones in my collection from the auto to manual transmission conversions I have done on my vans. Send me a private message if you are interested in these used parts.

If you have the manual transmission it's just the one cable and is as above VW rabbit.

Good luck
