To all you experts, after about 3 years and vast amount of  money my "Phoenix" is coming close to resurection. However my mechanic (a Lotus guy) tells me that one of the inner throttle shaft bushing is leaking air and causing popping. My questions are how common is this problem, what is the fix, and is there is a way to check if the shaft is twisted, as, from what i have read so far that is a fairly common problem. The problem carb also shows corrosion pitting inside, but before the butterfly, are there any fix for that and is it a problem? Thanks to all.
