Austin 1800 Throttle body clean
The throttle body can be found in the Austin 1800’s engine bay, it’s part of the air intake system on fuel-injected models. Air from the outside of the Austin 1800 is directed via tubes and flows through the air filter, into the throttle body, where it is then drawn into the intake manifold.
The air is then mixed with fuel and ignited, creating the combustion required to power a Austin 1800.
