[xj] Series 3 Deceleration Valve EAC8616

I am reassembling the inlet system while replacing all air
hoses.

Could anyone please reassure me as to the correct
orientation of the Deceleration Valve.

‘‘It is a spring mounted on a flange’’ is my best description,
and is on page 1I08R in my parts manual. It is mounted
within the hardware that contains the idle air screw and
vacuum take off.

When I removed this part the decel valve dropped to the
floor; I had no time to notice how it was mounted. In the
parts manual it only shows it '‘spring downwards’ seaparate
from the housing but unless I am missing something it cannot
mount that way.

It would seem the spring should be topside but before I
reassemble I would be very grateful for any input. I cannot
conceive how it does anything.

sincerely,

In reply to a message from David Hardy sent Fri 9 Oct 2009:

Hi Dave,
You’re right the spring goes topside, in fact the valve will only
fit one way anyhow.
The diagram in the parts manual is wrong and it got copied into
other books and manuals like that.
