My '88 Grand Wagoneer idles too fast I've noticed. There's no forward play in the throttle linkage, so the throttle isn't binding up. The throttle return spring is working fine. The high RPM...

A cousin of mine just had this very thing happen to him, but in his case it was a fusable link. Instead of replacing it, he just replaced it with straight wire.

I had to cut my heat sheild with tin-snips to get it to fit to the bottom of my Edelbrock 4bbl intake. Has anyone else had to do this?
I only hope I didn't mess anything up.
