    anyone have a used centre throttle body?

    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.

    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.

    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.
