If that putty doesnt hold, I think loctite makes a really nice 2 part plastic epoxy that alot of people use when porting there throttle bodies. Just sand the piece a little, clean with brake cleaner and dry. Then mix and cover the hole. It will dry/cure in a few hrs and will make a good permanent bond. I wouldnt think twice about the patch though, unless you boost it. then wou might as well just get a metal custom IM..lol

Thanks. The epoxy patch is holding at this point. Going to clean the IACV today and seafoam it, then tackle other issues (trans shifting, cool fans).

Dont have one in front of me right now. I am not sure, went on to www.rockauto.com to look at vendor pictures...

From Rock Auto's web site:





looks like there is actually be a small spring. they are not serviceable so if there is one or is not it would not have come off or anything.

It looks like there a few different types of design depending on how long the shaft is. not sure if 1 is better than the other.

Are you having idle problems?
