    When I do the butterflies I use good old hand files. You have better control. With a good hand I found it gives a more even/smoother transition. Then I polish it out with some wet sand.

    FYI: There's a raised lip around edge of the butterfly. Since you have it off, flat sand it. Plus it makes it shine

    Nice, I see you also did the butterfly shaft as well. I think it was from your post that I got the button head screw info from- it worked perfectly- just the right length.

    Since I'm not familar with throttle bodies, what did you use to clamp or plug up the coolant hoses? Do you have any problems with getting air into the coolant? I'm guessing you just unwind the throttle cables to get them off? Is that all there is to it besides the bolts?

    All you do is disconnect the coolant lines, they'll leak a little but not much. The air that gets in isn't going top hurt. I din't have to plug them as I just pushed the hoses around till the tips were up and let gravity do the work.

    Hold the throttle open with your hand then removal of the cables are self explanatory. Just look at them you'll see.
