May sound stupid but can someone please tell me where the Idle tracking switch and the choke are on the ED 4.0 please?
Cheers.

I was going by what was said in the Max Ellery repair manual. I thought it sounded real weird too.

Ive noticed a few people have had problems with their EB's idling rough lately. Mine is doing it too and its got me beat.
The only idle adjustment i know is in the TB.

Maybe they are referring to the Idle speed control valve or Throttle By Pass?

They can cause Bad idle as can the ICS potentiometer.

I reckon you are right. I'd never even heard of an idle tracking switch before I looked at the Max Ellery book. They probably do mean the ISC but thought they'd confuse everyone by writing something different.
As for the choke (Another thing mentioned in the Max Ellery book), It was my understanding that because it's EFI it didn't have one.
Looks like I might have to get a different workshop manual :lol:
