Optima Battery

A refurbished Optima battery replaced the aged liquid acid one. I cleaned the throttle body and did a little checking of the engine, and found the high idle was due to a poor ground coming from the throttle position sensor. This is a common issue on these Renix engine control systems and a fresh ground wire run to the firewall smoothed the idle considerably.
