Not getting full throttle

Hi,
I just put a new coolant tank in this morning.
And I was doing some snoping around. I found that with the throttle petal to the floor that the throtlebody still has a little travle left. Is this normal?
I don't see any means to adjust the cable. Is their a way to adjust it?

Thanks,

Richard

You didn't happen to photograph that coolant tank replacement as you did it, did you? I sure would like a photo training session!

No, but it is preaty easy.
I did not know anything about it and got it out this morning in like 20 minutes. Most of that time was spent letting the coolant drain down tell it stoped comming out of the tank.
Installe took even less time.
I will see what I can do to write up some steps I took and maybe a pic or 2.

Richard.

I have photos of the process, but just have not been able to get it written up and on my site. It will probably be a few weeks, but hopefully soon.
