Hi guys thanks for all the replies on "Idle Woes" post. I pulled off ISC and gave it a clean with carby cleaner, seems to be running smoother now and have also switched to premium unleaded.

My questions this time is I was looking through Gregory's book on EF series falcons and noticed that there is a gasket between ISc and thottle body :? . Is this right? I definatly do NOT have a gasket seperating the two.

Any advise is geartful!

could possibley give you a slightly rougher idle, as it might let a leak in thru where the gasket should be... i'd have it there either way! :P

im guessing it wouldn't seal up 100%, probably letting more air in an causing idle to rise. my d***head mechanic put mine back on incorrectly once (EB) and was letting more air and it was idling really high.

You could always make your own with a bit of gasket paper if your concerned.

the shinny thing on top of throttle body, controls idle or somethin, if it aint workin properly u get a real rough idle.
start car an disconnect it if ur curious like i was.

Stands for Idle Speed Control, sits on top of Throttle Body. Essentially it lets a little air bypass the throttle which increases or decreases the idle as required.

I have purchased on from ford as I could be bothered making my own (it is difficult to get down there to the ISC), I believe it was around 7 or it may have been 11 dollars.
I would personally be more concerned with unfiltered air getting into the engine rather than a rough idle (I am paranoid).
