    Question Throttle body cleaning and replacement gasket

    Hi guys,
    anyone done the above. Looks a fairly straight forward job ( don,t they all ).
    Is it as easy as it appears on you tube ?
    I can buy the cleaning fluid ok.
    But having trouble obtaining new gasket. If you did replace gasket where did you buy it from.

    Cheers

    Kevin

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
