Question Parking Brake activating Potentiometer Slightly ?

Have a crazy situation going on here that I'm hoping maybe somebody ran across at some point and has an answer and solution.
After hooking up a new throttle control (Potentiometer) for a cart build, and adjusting it to throttle pedal perfectly, have noticed that when setting the parking brake the throttle gets pulled slightly up from the "off" contact position and stays there as long as parking brake is set.
Anybody hear of this or experience the same thing? Everything underneath the cart on pedal assembly seems in order. Hope we are overlooking something simple. Thanks for any advice !

1.2. Loosen the brake stop jam nut (31), then relieve pedal pressure on the stop by pushing down
slightly on the pedal. Then adjust the brake stop bumper (22) up or down (Figure 5-2, Page 5-2).
Adjusting the bumper upward decreases distance between pedal and floorboard. Adjusting the
bumper downward increases distance between pedal and floorboard. Proper brake pedal height
is 5-3/4 in. (14.6 cm) 1/4 in (.6 cm) (Figure 5-3, Page 5-2).
1.3. Tighten the jam nut (31) to 8 ft.lb. (9.5 N-m) (Figure 5-2, Page 5-2).
2. ADJUST PARK BRAKE RATCHET/PAWL GAP AND PAWL ENGAGEMENT
2.1. Adjust the retaining nut (7) on the spring support rod until there is a .060 in. gap .030 between
the pawl and the tips of the ratchet teeth. Use a feeler gauge to verify the gap (Figure 5-4, Page
5-4). The gap should be consistent through range of pawl movement. If the gap is not consistent,
loosen the four bolts (6) (Figure 5-4, Page 5-4) securing the accelerator pivot rod supports and
adjust the supports. If the gap becomes smaller as the park brake pedal is depressed, move the
pivot rod supports slightly rearward until the gap is consistent. If the gap becomes larger as the
park brake pedal is depressed, move the pivot rod supports slightly forward until the gap is consistent.
Read following NOTE before proceeding.
2.2. With the park brake unlocked, measure and note the distance from the top of the accelerator
pedal to the floorboard, and then lock the park brake (Figure 5-5, Page 5-5).
2.3. With the park brake locked, make sure that at least 75% of ratchet tooth length engages the pawl
(Figure 5-6, Page 5-5). Tooth engagement should be between the two lines marked on the pawl.
2.4. With the park brake still locked, again measure the distance from the top of the accelerator pedal
to the floorboard. If the measurement has changed, ratchet tooth engagement is too deep and
must be adjusted.
2.5. If ratchet/pawl engagement must be adjusted, disconnect the ball joint at the top of the brake rod
and rotate the ball joint sleeve clockwise to increase engagement or counterclockwise to
decrease engagement. Reconnect ball joint (Figure 5-7, Page 5-5).
2.6. If the accelerator push rod was disconnected from the accelerator pedal, reconnect it.
3. ADJUST ACCELERATOR PEDAL HEIGHT
3.1. Loosen the nut and bolt (Figure 5-8, Page 5-5) securing the accelerator pedal to the pivot
plate. Clamp the accelerator pedal adjustment tool (Club Car Part No. 101871001) to the
accelerator pedal, with the end marked accelerator pedal height toward the floorboard, then
depress the accelerator pedal until the end of the tool rests against the floorboard (pedal
height should be 5-5/8 in.). Use a rubber strap to hold pedal in position against the floorboard
and then tighten nut to 26 ft.lb. (35.3 N-m) (Figure 5-9, Page 5-5).
• For gasoline vehicles, proceed to Step 4.
• For V-Glide 36-volt vehicles, and for PowerDrive System 48 and PowerDrive Plus vehicles,
proceed to Page 5-6.
4. ADJUST THE ACCELERATOR ROD.
• Adjust the Accelerator Rod - Gasoline Vehicles Only:
4.1. Remove the electrical box cover.
4.2. Disconnect the accelerator rod (17) at the accelerator pedal, then loosen the jam nuts (1 and
adjust the length of the rod (Figure 5-11, Page 5-7) to obtain an accelerator cable cam position of
15-17 as shown (Figure 5-10, Page 5-6). See following CAUTION.
