[DML] Re: High idle post tune up

Check that the tube that goes into the bottom of the mixture unit for
the idle motor is in correctly. Check that the quadrant link is not
bent or twisted and is moving properly without too much play in the
ends. Recheck each vacuum hose for proper routing and connection. It
has to be something you did during your most recent work if it was OK
