I moved it not knowing what it was for when I was trying to get it to idle. Not my best move I'm sure.

Looks to be attached to an extra bracket that's bent.

Thank you folks. How do you set it without a tach? I'm thinking by ear.
It's not overly critical, no, but as a rule, even though it sounds better to some, you don't want it idling too low.

I've read on here higher idle is important re getting enough oil pumped at low rpm. Lopey idle like with a big cam definitely sounds too low. Search and you'll find some videos on setting the idle by ear. G/L

I believe that's true. Some people live that barely idling sound, but you want to make sure you get oil to all of the critical parts.
