Default Sticky Accelerator Pedal '76 HD DE-40

The speed switch on this electric golf cart consists of a series of 6 copper contacts arranged in an arc, and one moveable contact that slides over them as you increase speed (step harder on the pedal). (Maybe they all work this way, I don't know this is the first golf cart I have owned.) For some reason the stationary contacts are varying heights, so that the moveable contact gets hung up, causing the pedal to stick, creating some harrowing golf cart rides. I notice the moveable contact is worn at an angle also, and maybe this is part of the problem too. Can I "adjust" the stationary contacts, like with a file? Or what is the best way to fix this problem? Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

File all of them smooth. That's how we did it back in the day.

Also, if I remember correctly, I believe you can adjust the pivot bolt below the wiper arm assembly to make sure the two copper contact pads meet evenly. That way the contact surface between the two copper pads is maximized.

Should they need replaced, those copper contacts are widely available as they are used on virtually all carts of that time. Just take the measurements and hit the Google.
