You do know there is a free factory service manual download in the stickies don't you? If you prefer not to get your computer greasy there is my go to, the printed version.
Since you are a customer of Oregon injection you must live close to Eugene? So does one of our other members, who I see almost every time I go to visit my grandkids in Salem.

Brakes disk and drums
Fuel, oil, and air filters
Getting ready to do the thermostat and water pump on my 04.
But I have never opened up a motor. Guess I will try to do the idle adjustments on my own. This site has been crucial for my mechanical confidence.

|GAmes||In addition to what @SFGiants posted, if they are adjusting the rod like the OP did you will have the same issue. My IP is the original.|

Your pump should not have to be rebuilt from adjusting the low-speed idle if done correctly. Are you sure they are adjusting the low-speed, external idle screw at the lower firewall side of the pump? There is a tamper-proof high-speed idle screw that exists as well, though this shouldn't be messed with.

|Millionmiles||My 97’ 12v is constantly needing this done. I take it to Oregon fuel injection for fuel filter changes and any thing else connected to the fuel system because they are supposed to be specialists. They rebuilt my injectors and did the trimming on my fuel pump at 200k. Could a dirty fuel filter cause this kind of low idle? Last time they adjusted it they said they might not be able to adjust it again. Said my pump might have to be rebuilt? It starts up immediately and runs great. Has 337,000 miles and the motor sounds better then my 2004 that has 124,000.|

After I screwed up the linkage spec, it seemed to raise the shift points to a higher RPM even under only moderate-slight throttle, and it also didn't shift as smoothly. My guess is the tiny bit of tension on the TCV cable was the culprit here.
As always, thanks for the help everyone.
