Merv - *sorry*.

No cables. The 126 are connected by rods. They would need a good lubing to make it sleek.

Thanks anyway YMsin.

Maybe I'll go check the air-hoses that runs from the idle-control valve. Read somewhere that if they're all dried up or filled with crud, replacing them will help the idling pretty much.

Have a nice day!

Mervyn:

Makes a huge difference -- my 300TE banged and thumped something awful, and stalled all the time until I replaced the idle valve hoses. They were loose on the valve! Rock hard, too.

Clean the idle valve while you have it off -- fill with carb cleaner, shake, and dump until the carb cleaner stays clear. Wear gloves, it contains methylene chloride -- removes all the oils in you skin!

If you've had the idle mixture adjusted recently, you will need to have that re-set, too -- you will eliminate a serious air leak at idle.
