Seems to have worked too, I just took the car for 10 more miles and it behaved 
much more like it ought to, had all the get up and go I'd expect for 72hp.

I even ran the AC for the whole time and it still managed to climb the hill to 
get back home. I have to go to California tomorrow, when I get back I'll spend 
some time looking into the bushing on that pivot...

It certainly does seem like a reasonable idea. If the IP lever doesn't go
all the way to the stop, you are not getting full power.
