I forgot about that screw. I adjusted the idle when I first got the new throttle body but never thought to readjust it. I believe I know how to fix this whole problem. As you know if you turn the distributor one way it idles faster if you turn it the other way it idles slower. (Still get confused as to which way is advance and which way is retard.) Obviously the timing was set too much ?ed (advanced,retarded?) and I had to loosen the screw way too much to make it idle down. So if I adjust the timing to where it needs to be I should probably have to tighten the screw to make it idle higher so it wont die on me and the butterfly in there shouldnt get stuck against the bore anymore. I will try this today and let you know. If it doesnt work then Step 2??
