[DML] Re: Idle Problems Solved-Well, Almost!

Sorry to see that you are selling your car so soon Mike.

Never got to meet you last year in Cincinnati when you did the frame 

Sad to see someone put so much work into the car and then sell it.

> 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!
