Wow Olford good job bro... Do you notice a difference after you sanded the screws down. I wouldn't imagine you could but who knows...
Yep, should of mentioned lock tight, good call slouesloue said:crazy we used to do that to carbs we ran on the dirt tracks that touch more over the next guy coming out of the corners two thumbs up and e for effort. LOCK TIGHT is your freind in this case
With the shaft this is what I plan... The black throttle pin is what I want to work on. On the side of the throttle plate where I shaved down the screws (the top of the plate in the picture) I want to cut out the part of the black pin located between the screws. But I only want to do it on the one side and between the screws. Ive done research and it will still be plenty strong enough if I do that and it will allow much more fast moving air through the area of the throttle body in which it moves the fastest.alwaysFlOoReD said:I've never done nor seen like that. Makes sense, now what about grinding on the shaft, or would that weaken it too much? And were the screws staked in place, might want to keep an eye on it for a while in case it wants to back off. I say thumbs up.
I wont even try it until Saturday since its the next day I have off but ill probably head to the junkyard and get one off a junked 3.0. The way the plate rotates when in idle and throttling up the incoming air will push up on the cut part which will hold the plate against the intact side of the throttle pin. To be safe I can try to put liquid nail on the plate and intact side of the pin to ensure that it will not rattle or separate. You think that would be good?alwaysFlOoReD said:Personally I'd go for it. Do you have another one just in case? The only thing I can think of that might happen is vibration between plate and shaft. Kinda like a blade of grass between your thumbs and blowing across it. gtg
lol... come slap me I dare you!!!
