[DML] Re: Yet another Idle question

So I did some more testing tonight - I again checked my #9 & #11 pins 
for the thermistor and verified that the resistance was approx 10K ohms 
less once the car warmed up, so no problem there.  I used my propane 
bottle to check for vaccuum leaks, but didn't find any.  I checked the 
idle speed motor and it was humming with the ignition on and the car 
not running.  I took off the air filter assembly and played around with 
the throttle / micro switch.  It seems to be closing all the way, I 
pushed on it as far as it would go and no change, it still idles high.

Then, the strangest thing happened - when I was putting the air filter 
back on (connecting the large hose below the overflow bottle) and 
moving the wiring harness that goes over the intake, the idle dropped 
from almost 2K rpm down to 800rpm.  This makes me think that something 
is just loose somewhere, and since I'm only having the high idle as the 
car warms up, I'm not sure where to start hunting.  

Any ideas?
