Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
Chuck, i gotta quick question about the throttle switch and stuff. I've
check mine to make sure they are turning off and on athe right time (wide
open and just as you touch the throttle cable) but would a bad switch
cause surging? Here is the deal, if i step on teh gas and bring the rpms
to 2000, after a minute it heads to 3000 and then back to 2000 after 15
seconds. Any ideas?
