    In this first picture I marked 3 holes with a marker. I never noticed it till now but all three line up perfectly with the throttle part way open. One hole is in the throttle body and the other two are on the back side throttle bracket. I looked in the 62 and 63 service manuals and see nothing to reference this. I am sure Oldsmobile done this for a reason, I am assuming it was for a manufacturer process if there is not something in the service manual I am overlooking. Not a big deal, just curious why the three holes? I pin would fit perfect in them to keep it open



    I have not noticed the line up of these holes before? Don’t know what they were designed for. Would make a good secret lock out for an anti-theft system…ha!.
