    I see the same pic posted twice and neither is right,lol.
    I haven't worked on one for over 20 years but I'm pretty sure that lil arm in the foreground is supposed to be below the pull-off stump, so that when the vacuum comes up, after the start, and as the engine cleans itself out; the pull-off, pulls down on that arm; which IIRC moves the fast-idle link, so that when you tickle the gaspedal, the fast idle cam falls to a lower step. Make sense?

    Been a bit behind on forum reading and just now read this. I will try to go into my deep freeze (aka, my detached garage) and take some pictures, tonight.

    What is the TQ model number you currently have (example is 9123s).
