have but the pedal stop is new for me.  The picture is very helpful, Dave. 

After 18 years of Tiger ownership, I can still learn new things. 
This list (of course, I mean the Tiger community) is great.  Thank you!

It wasn't
until I recently installed a new 
interior that I discovered the two holes
with welded nuts beneath on my tranny 
tunnel. I had an email from coolVT -
Mark L who pointed out that there is also a 
throttle stop on the top of the
tunnel consisting of a small bolt with a lock 
nut threaded into a welded nut
underneath as well.
If you are a relaxed driver who seldom puts the 
to the medal, you are not likely to ever suffer a stretched or worse, 
throttle cable or carb linkage. But if you are want to occasionally smoke 
tires or hammer the throttle, passing a line of slugs, then its wise to have
one of these, properly adjusted, so the worst you can do to the linkage is
the rubber stop. I admire your restraint!
Here's a photo of the one I
made - installed 
over the vinyl:
