    DaraSue, I'm glad you got it sorted. Very impressive!

    These cars can sometimes wear on your patience.

    David, Your suggestion, however, was too lengthen the link.

    You have to shorten it to remove the slack and preload it at idle. The slack then moves to opening the throttle, which is of no concern.

    Thanks again for your help and advice, everybody! It was quite a project (especially considering I'd never even changed my own oil before buying this car, and technically still haven't), but it was worth it to have a few extra days of driving before the snow hit.
