  1. Set the parking brake and block the wheels to prevent movement. If equipped with an automatic transmission, have an assistant apply the brakes as a further safety precaution during the following procedures.
  2. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature.
  3. Make sure that the ignition timing is set as described in Chapter 1.
  4. On a vehicle with a manual shift transmission, the idle should be set with the transmission in Neutral. On vehicles with an automatic transmission, the idle adjustment is made with the transmission in Drive.
  5. Make sure the choke plate is fully open.
  6. Make sure the air conditioning is turned off.
  7. Use a tachometer of known accuracy and connect it to the vehicle according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  8. Adjust the engine curb idle rpm to the specification listed on the Emissions Control Information label under the hood. Make sure the air cleaner is installed during this adjustment.
  9. If so equipped, turn the solenoid assembly to obtain the specified curb idle rpm with the solenoid activated.
  10. Place the automatic transmission in Neutral.
  11. Interrupt the power by disconnecting the solenoid lead wire at the connector.
  12. Adjust the carburetor throttle stop screw to obtain 500 rpm in Neutral.
  13. Connect the solenoid wire and open the throttle slightly by hand. The solenoid plunger should hold the throttle lever in the extended position and increase the engine speed.

  15. With the engine running, carefully turn the idle mixture screws all the way in, but do not force them or they will be damaged.
  16. Back the screws out very slowly until the smoothest idle is obtained. The idle mixture screws should be turned simultaneously in equal increments.
  17. Take the vehicle to a dealer or tune-up facility and have the mixture adjusted to conform to the applicable emission regulations and provide acceptable levels of driveability and performance.



  1. Working behind the instrument panel, disconnect the cable from the rear of the speedometer head.
  2. Carefully pull the inner cable out from the upper end of the outer cable.
  3. If the inner cable is broken, raise the vehicle and, working underneath, remove the bolt securing the speedometer cable mounting clip to the transmission.
  4. Remove the speedometer cable shaft and driven gear from the transmission.
  5. Remove the driven gear retainer and the driven gear and shaft from the cable.
  6. Remove the lower part of the broken inner cable from the end of the outer cable.
  7. Installation of the inner cable is the reverse of removal.
  8. Lightly lubricate the inner cable and insert it into the outer cable. When the cable is nearly all the way in, turn it to ensure that the squared end engages with the speedometer driven gear.

  10. Working behind the instrument panel, disconnect the cable from the rear of the speedometer head.
  11. Push the outer cable and grommet through the opening in the dashboard panel.
  12. Disconnect the cable from the transmission as described above and withdraw it from under the vehicle.
