Awesome! Thanks for the suggestions! I stopped by Tru Value and got a micro torch for $30 because there isn't a Harbor Freight within 50 miles of Southern MD. About 5 cycles of heat/PB Blaster, it began to work free. What I found inside was a white powdery build up of some sort of residue along the rim, just aft of the threads. I know it was clean prior to installing it last time (maybe 10K miles ago). Any ideas? (pics attached). You can see the residue on the screw threads as well. It almost appears as a salt powder (didn't care to taste it
). I have been riding this winter, and there was salt brine on the roads, although not very often, considering the winter we have had. Could dried salt brine made it's way past the filter?
Anyway, worst part's over and I am not pricing a throttle body. Currently awaiting 2 new brass screws from Bobs. Whats the best way to clean that area out?
