Checking And Adjusting Rest Position Of Air Flow Sensor Plate


Air Flow Sensor Location

1. Pull off high tension wire 4 from distributor and operate starter approx. 10 seconds.

2. Upper edge of air flow sensor plate must be flush with beginning of venturi cone or at most a max. of 0.5 mm higher (strive for lowest position).

3. Air flow sensor plate must be horizontal and centered in venturi.


An excessively high air flow sensor plate setting can be corrected by driving down the stop spring guide pin with a drift and light hammer.


Adjust very carefully, so that guide pin is not driven in too deep.

Avoid repeated adjustments in both directions, since this would loosen press fit of pin.
