Yes great video Jason! Thanks for that! I now fully understand how it works. I never knew what that thing was in the first place and how it operated. It's one of those parts that I am sure most of us that own these cars simply don't even think twice about on what it's supposed to do or how it functions.

This definitely should be in the help section on the forum to let everyone know before you tune the carb, it's a MUST, to MAKE SURE the throttle check isn't keeping throttle plates open.

Thanks Tony. I meant to point out the adjustment screw.. I'm a bit rusty on the videos! LOL People screw it out as an idle control ... not knowing or otherwise! I've done it myself on marginally running parts cars to keep them running instead of fine tuning and dialing in the carb when all I needed to do was see that the engine runs, move the car around, or just tickle myself silly with the pleasures of hearing a 390 or 429 run!

Nice explanation , of a part that is seldom ,if at all seen on other cars ,so that helps a lot to understand its purpose

My 1964 Cadillac electrical system is running around 17 volt which is to high,the alternator, battery and the voltage regulator was replaced but the voltage is still to high, could it be the pig tail that plugs into the voltage regulator.
