Throttle Valve switch adjustment question

Being the factory tool for setting the throttle valve switch is pretty much a extinct animal, I was wondering if anyone has a procedure to set it with a ohm meter, and what terminals to use?

Here's something EVERYONE with an early '70s injected Volvo needs;



I bought this little book many years ago at a meet. Very handy.

Rather than re-type, I've grabbed some pix of this part of the details. It's part of a whole trouble shooting procedure for FI on 1800s, 140s and 164;








I don't want to get into any copyright issues so that's all I'm posting. I'll ask you to find your own copy of the book.

It will come in handy.

Thank you. After reading this I started searching and found a copy on line, along with a lot of lost or not avalible infromation on these cars. This book is a must read. Hope to have this running next week.
