Check which vs of the TB's are installed, pre or post '97. Plan on replacing cables, rubber intake manifolds, cleaning TB's, injectors, tank ect. It is actually quite a primitive and simple f.i. system. By beginning with verification of fuel and air delivery you will save much time and grief. Increased performance will amaze. Re-paste the exhaust joints. Only other things likely to cause major perf issues on 1100 are HES (read Donnie's thread), worn out TPS, bad ignition key sub harness, bad main ground and switches. Happy GS'ing.
Did you read what the fix was?

Has anyone ever tried using a dab of some kind of silicone, RTV, or something like that to just help make sure the cable stays out while doing routine maintanance?

Something that can easily be removed and cleaned off for cable service and cleaning, but will hold the cable end in place during normal use and service?

Just a thought.

It could be done, but would get in the way during throttle body syncing.
