You very well may be right. I pulled the Throttle Bodies tonight and looked inside. They were pretty bad and it looked like a BP oil spill in there. I cleaned them out. however the oetiker clamps gave me a run for my money. Ended up cutting them off. I am gonna replace them with oetiker screw clamps from Aircraft Spruce. until they arrive or I use a temporary substitute will not know how it will turn out. worse thing about this whole ordeal, never got the fried pie!
I guess if this works I owe you a slice of pie!
