part 2

On UKevo recomendaton I thought I would test the idle potentiometer. I pulled the plug and checked the ohms between plug 1 and 2. Very nice start at 1.5 then as depressed it increased very nicely, until suddenly it went from 3.98 to 42 then it went back down to 4.02 so I figure I have a bad conntact. I pulled the potentiometer after marking its position on the casing. I took a picture of it but it did not turn out as well as I would like, anyway the area highlighted is silver the rest of the arch is all a black colour, so I assume it is worn out.

thanks for any input.
