How do I remove the throttle position switch?

OK I know there are two screws one either side but there is a female connection on the TPS which appears to lock onto a shaft from the throttle body.Anyone know the trick?

There is a locking tongue inside the female connection and I am sure it locks into a groove on the shaft,someone must have removed one???

Pull and wiggle, I think that's how I managed. I forget if I had to pry to get the TPS off of the throttle shaft; if you do so be careful not to bend the shaft!

I've been better. (Long story.)

A stronger spring will generally mean more wear on the throttle body, throttle valve, and bellcrank. You want the spring to be strong enough to close the throttle valve, plus a little bit more for safety margin, and that's it.

I'm pretty sure you have to drill out the two OEM rivets that attaches the TPS to the TB. Use pop rivets to reattach.

As far as I know, the TPS is held on by screws, not rivets.
