    Hi, I think the pitures have been deleted on this thread, would some folks be so kind as to put them back?

    This is a very important topic that always seems to come up.

    No one likes an intermittent Lurch.





    What pictures do you need?

    Please read the post ABOVE. Not the "lurch" stuff (funny Adams family pic, btw).

    I think HUF had posted some pictures of tools he made for the ISC / Idle adjustment procedures. I would guess that topic has to be in the top 10 most requested questions around here. Just today somebody in the Seville/Eldorado forum was asking about removing the ISC motor, and couldn't figure out how to reach and remove the retaining nuts!

    I think HUF must have cheated Kent-Moore out of about $300 with the clever stuff he made himself. See just one example:

    Do you understand me now 'Sevillian?' Thanks for the past advice, btw.

    Didnt know if you wanted pics of the idle screw or of the tools.

    Fwiw, I made a tool for both the min air screw and the TPS bolts. It is a 1/4" with a torx bit inserted in the box end. Just an idea...



    I believe I used the same bit for the isc but I cant remember exactly...

    A regular pair of pliers worked fine for the ISC plunger.

    That's so cool! I had a similar idea, believe it or not, but not as good as yours . . . .

    The ISC bracket screws need a #15 Torx in order to remove the motor completely, I am guessing . . . .

    I can't budge the ISC plunger at all with just pliers. That's why I will try removing the ISC motor from the throttle body entirely, first.

    This is what I do as well. It's the only way I know to get at those without loosening and maneuvering the whole TB.

    Also, I use channel locks for the ISC plunger.

    Here is the picture of home-made tool for ISC motor plunger adjustment and torx set for minimum air adjustment and ISC motor removal (as far as I remember the screws holding ISC motor were torx as well).
