How to tighten throttle cable more than allowed?
Posted 27 September 2018 - 01:26 PM
I need to open the throttle by tightening the cable a little more, but I am at the end of the threaded portion...
What are my options to get this slack out and open the TB a little?

It only cost me like maybe $40.00 for the valve from 90s BMW and $2.00 for 50w 40 ohm resistor.l ran without it for a while it worked fine but l like this set up much better now.
Just another option to keep in mind.

Some people have gotten away with drilling a small hole in the throttle plate, like 1/8". This is a permanent throttle plate leak, just enough to help idle flow. The screw is a better way to adjust, but you get the gist.

I googled some images and yes there is a long hex screw that the throttle plate sits against
I will take a look at mine tomorrow

I have a different ford TB but I had the same issue as you on initial startup. I had to adjust the setscrew to control the idle rpm. Actually had to adjust it several times as I tuned in the engine management system.
For the cable, keep a little bit of slack in it at idle.
