Remove tank to reach the TPS?
The Check Engine light has started coming on (duration changes, sometimes a short blink other times it stays on for a few seconds and goes off) when I am on the highway. I was trying to find the TPS to test it and it looks like I might have to remove the tank, is that right? Does anyone have a pick of the TPS location?

the TPS is screwed to the carb. the shaft that opens the carb butterflies also turns the TPS switch. the switch can be adjusted by loosening its mounting screws. if you lift the back of the fuel tank up you'll see it. the switch is exactly opposite were the cables attach. the TPS controls the ignition timing curve it has nothing to do with fuel delivery.

I know what it does, since it is part of the carb and under the fuel tank I figured I would post in fuel delivery. I guess I should have posted in the electrical system section instead of fuel delivery.

Thanks for the info.
