I found this message at allpar.com but I couldn't get a response to my question.

"Throttle Bodies revealed that the Driver Side T.B. was way under adjusted (low) & the Passenger Side T.B was over adjusted (high). The connecting rod was also out of sync. I sync'd the 2 T.B.'s and the rod and the RPM overrun has been minimized"

How do you adjust the 2 throttle bodies? What does one high and one low mean??? And how do you sync the 2 throttle bodies?
:confused:

usually you would never have to bother the linkage rod between the bodies unless one of the TB's were replaced. High and low refer to cfm's ( like a carb ) The sync. procedure is a bit of a beech, if you want to try it, I'll get it for you, but " if it aint broke, don't f* with it"! If you look between the bods, you'll see the rod they're talking about. the passenger side TB has an adjusting screw to set throttle plate opening since the accelerator cable only works the D-side TB. If the screw was set too far one way or the other, the right side of the engine would be all out of sync with the left side!
P.S. lovin the spinning Dodge emblem!
