Continuing to adjustment:

with the above steps already performed,
pry the T.V. cable lock into the UP position. This will unlock the cable & allow for adjustment.
Apply just enough tension on the T.V. cable to remove any slack in the cable.
Pulling too tight will cause the T.V. lever on the transmission to move out of idle position which will result in an incorrect T.V. cable adjustment.
Slide the sheath of the T.V. cable back & forth until the center-lines of the T.V. cable end & the throttle bell crank lever are aligned w/in 1 mm.
While holding the T.V. cable lock in the set position, push the T.V. cable lock into the down position. This will lock the present T.V. cable adjustment.

note: be sure that as the cable is pulled forward & centered on the TB lever stud, the cable housing moves smoothly with the cable. Due to the angle at which the cable housing enters the spring housing, the cable housing may bind slightly & create an incorrect adjustment.

Reconnect the T.V. cable to the throttle bell-crank lever.
Check cable adjustment. Verify that transmission throttle lever & lever on TB move simultaneously.
