I've only got a vacuum line running from on top of the valve cover down
to the tranny. There is a rod that I thought led down to the tranny, on
the throttle rod that twists, but that rod only goes down to a SPRING
and the spring is connected to the body. It all looks way too over
engineered to be simply a tension adjuster, but you know MB. Did that
rod previously go to the tranny (doesn't look like it).
I mean there's the threaded rod and locknut, all this rubber layered
shock absorption shit where the vertical rod connects to the throttle
twist rod, but it's all connected to a simple /spring/
and it seems way
too complicated to have so much adjustment for a simple spring.
The car shifts a lot better since I fixed the shut-off actuator on the
injection block (dunno why) but I think this car shifts by vacuum and
not by throttle position. It is a grey market vehicle. I checked my
parts car (which is a 4speed stick, '83, not auto like my runner) and it
has the same complicated rod system going down to a simple spring. I
don't get it.
