I think what he'* trying to say is that he'll check on it later.

He'* a bit busy right now.

A Dremel.

Sanding doesn't take that long since it'* already very smooth. Mine took me < 10 minutes to get it where it is.

Just make sure you don't remove any material where the throttle plate closes. It may be best to leave it in place during polishing for that reason. It MUST be able to seal properly.

I noticed when I put the plate back in it didn't close all the way, but I adjusted it so it was pretty close. I didn't remove any material from that area because I didn't want to go too far.

That plate is somewhat difficult to get adjusted just right. Make sure it doesn't bind, and make sure you can see minimal daylight around it when closed.

I got it so it was VERY close to closed. I could see the lines in the plate from where it sat in the shaft and it matched up. It idles better after startup than it did before, though it'* not perfect.
