Default TPS install question

I found this from a post from jr's3800 back in 2003 on the tps install:

1) With throttle valve in normal closed idle position, install throttle position sensor on throttle body assembly, making sure the pickup lever is above the tang on the throttle actuator lever

I removed and reinstalled my tps and now my idle rpm is high and rough.
When installing, I noticed an arm on a spring action that only fit in one way and the screw holes matched up.Is that the Pickup lever and tang thing jr was talking about?.
I had to insert it with a bit of a twist to do this. Did I do it right?
If I put it straight in, the screw holes didnt match up. should I have forced it?
I did it without taking the tb off, I used a pliers to get the bottom screw in. What a pain. I lost one bit down in the engine bay someplace and had to purchas a whole set of star bits to get the one I needed.


I need a picture guide..... :(
