Hi mate, the part encircled in red is the fuel line NOT the throttle linkage. The throttle linkage is directly below the fuel line. Disconnect that and then check the movement of the racks. If still no movement disconnect each rack so they are independent to find out which one is ceased or maybe both. It is also worth while checking the movement of the throttle linkage as that could be your only problem. Like so many things it is a slow process of elimination but you will win, just be patient.

Thanks all, sorry for the lack of correspondence.
As like everywhere in the world right now, it's been crazy and I haven't touched the Lister for ages.
Hopefully I'll get round to it in the next month...
Keep safe
