[DML] High Idle Dilemma-problem found

     Just about everyone was right on this one....:)  The throttle arm
and screw are indeed adjusted correctly.  However, after speaking with
Dave Delman on the phone (Thanks for calling, Dave!) we disconnected
the "dogbone" from the throttle arm to the throttle spool and the car
idled perfect.  Looks like the "dogbone" linkage rod somehow got
longer, or out of adjustment and was leaving the throttle butterflies
open a little bit, just like everyone thought.  Now the trick is
getting my fingers in there to shorten that linkage rod.  That should
also take up some slack in my throttle pedal that I have always had
since I have owned the car.  

I'll keep you posted, but this ought to put a close to this issue and
let me finally pass emissions!

Thanks to everyone who chimed in, both on and off the list.
