[DML] Idle Problems Solved-Well, Almost!

First let me say that I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday as we look forward to turkey sandwiches and leftovers for the next few days!  Thanks to the advice from the list (especially David T.) I was able to isolate my idle problem as a misadjustment to the quadrant link connecting the throttle spool to the body.  I can get it to idle correctly at 850-900RPM but when I step on the accelerator the mixture control unit opening hangs open a little so that the idle moves to 2000RPM.  If you tap the idle spool by hand it snaps back enough to close the opening and the idle settles back down to normal.  After playing with this for an hour I still couldn't get this now simple problem solved!  I was hoping that I might get some tips for readjusting the link so it doesn't keep hanging up and causing the engine to race.  Oh yeah, this whole ordeal began when I tried a tip posted on the list of backing out the brass screws on the butterfly assembly to alter the idle.  I snapped those suckers right off and found myself suddenly in the market for a new butterfly assembly.  I should have known-if it ain't broke don't fix it!
