Installed a new TPS in my 1987 Brougham. Boy what fun! The old one was stuck down to full throttle. I managed to let the TPS plunger fall into the carb bore. Spent about 20 min. getting that out.
Make sure the carb body isn't crushed. My TPS was sticking when I tried to adjust it and I found the carb about 3mm shorter on that side due to a gorilla mechanic who tightened it down too tight. 10 lb fts! 10 ft. Lbs!!!!!!! And retorque every 6 months!
After driving, I found that my secondary butterfly was floping around loose. The car would stall. I tightened the spring up and that helped. It runs as though it has a vacuum leak, with a sort of irratic miss in its idle.
