    Thanks for the feedback. Seems like I remember reading that one can use 8 cylinder but I think you divide by 2. Maybe someone else will comment.

    Yes that is what I meant and have read and understand it's operation although haventbloomed into it. What I was wondering is is there any chance it could fail in the open position or not likely?

    As stated I am going to start with plunger and valve clearance. If anything it is one less item that could be in question. This is an automatic and has the microswitched on the throttle mechanism.
