There are two hoses that are connected, and neither will come off, there is one flexable rubber one, and one hard one [I think may be the thing holding it on], plus I still have the fuel lines connected, and I am going to purge the system as soon as the rain clouds pass, and remove those, and that may help.. Anyone have any suggestions? The bolt which houses the kickdown cable adjustment thing.. is non turnable, because its connected to the butterfly, which means I can't turn it.. so I know I will have to take the TB off.. no avoiding it.

I don't know if I'm missing something or what.. BUt you do NOT have to turn any bolts whatsoever to adjust the kickdown cable. Do me a favor and take a quick picture of the throttle/cruise control cables from the top showing the black metal bracket/throttle body, and the firewall. Then I'll show you this little black box which you use to adjust the cable. you just press it (there'* a button under the hard rubber) and pull the throttle to WOT and you're done. Thati'* it.

Nope. Still completely in the wrong area man. I went out and got a service manual since my words can't seem to explain it right. If after this picture you still can't get it.. I don't know what else to do to help you. I would take pictures of a car first hand and show you, but I no longer own a car with that same setup.

deeeerrr.. took a look at the thread, reading everything in detail.. and bam, didn't see projectheavytouring'* post.. he mentioned he read that in a haynes manual.. so i though.. you know, I think I have one of those.. took it out, brushed the dust off of it, and bam! what do I find? TV cable adjustment.. did the instructions, which were word for word what projectheavytouring said.. and did it, and now it has about an extra inch of tension available there at my fingertips.. just ddeeerrr on my part.. but thanks guys.. there is a readjustment tab, located at the top of a plastic housing mounted on the black metal cover.. thanks guys.. guess I need to start reading everything a little more throughly..
