    Re: cap? what cap

    Got it !.. sorry about that.

    My brass screw was stuck as well.., just soak it and it will loosen.

    cap? what cap

    this is the large brass thing.. not the idle synchronisers.
    I am talking about #33 on this pic...
    in any case I guess I will work on it again this summer..

    I've had very good luck with PB Blaster on frozen

    and/or corroded fasteners. If that doesn't work I'd take it to a machine shop and have them jig it up, drill it out and then chase the threads. These bits and pieces are too expensive to fool around with.

    Just soak that sucker with oil..., take the cap off and let some penetrating oil sit in the whole for a month. It will come loose eventually. Or, you can try a little heat, this usually does the trick. If you can't break it loose let me know. I have a spare set of B35 throttles but would hate to break it up unless you're really in a bind.

    My idle adjust screw is seized solid, maybe i will drill it out and buy a new screw, but maybe that will kill it...

    If I can get a backup that would be nice.
