Throttle valve cleaning 1986 SEi
I've been trying my best to use the search function so I don't have to keep asking a question that I'm sure has been answered a dozen times before. I haven't figured out how to get it to take a multi-word search?

There are many maintenance items that I'm sure need addressed on this old bike so I've been trying to plow through them all. I'd like to do a complete tune-up starting with the throttle valve cleaning..

I'm not real sure I understand the logic of the instructions. It says to hook up a vacuum gauge and bring the engine speed up to the highest vacuum.

Question 1: Where is this screw?

Then spray the cleaner (I've selected Barrymans spray cleaner) into the cleaning hole

Question 2: Where is the cleaning hole?

Blip the throttle for 15-20 seconds while spraying

Question 3: Does anyone know at about what RPM you get a good high vacuum at, I mean really does it have to be that exact?

Then decrease the engine speed to obtain the lowest possible vacuum, again wouldn't this be like idle? Spray the cleaner again into the cleaning hole and blip the throttle for 15-20 seconds.

Stuff like this is why I usually take my own pictures of things so others aren't looking at a cartoon picture or picture that is so dark nothing is distinct.

I thought I would do this before replacing my plugs and wires so I don't foul out my new plugs

If it's not broke, I can fix that!
