Re: Lets get back to oilheads...throttle body question

Did you check the choke cable sheave???   Sometimes its full of small gravel bits. On mine, with the same mileage the throttle shafts are OK.

  Thanks, Pascal, et al

  I thought (hoped) replacing o-rings would solve my problem...not so.  
  The throttle bodies seem to synch ok under load, but idle is 
  erratic...bypass screws still widely apart to balance.  I'll check shaft 
  play tomorrow, spray some carb cleaner at them, and clean out the bypass 
  screws (maybe there's a bad o-ring in there).  Throttle stops seem 
  tight, so I don't think there's any sense in trying to zero them if the 
  butterfly shaft bushings are worn out.  Many thanks.
