Adjustment

7. Adjust the cable, by selecting the appropriate position of the spring clip behind the cable outer bush, to give a small amount of free play in the inner cable when the pedal is released. On 1.3 litre models with 13NB engine, make sure that with the choke control pushed fully home there is a small clearance between the fast idle adjuster screw and the choke cam plate (see illustration).
