Installing new Throttle Position Sensor

I noticed the mounting holes on the TPS are slotted to adjust it.

What is the correct procedure to install it?

Do you have to turn it until it reads a certain voltage like on GM cars or until it touches the throttle body butterfly linkaged?

You set it up based on voltage as read at the ECU harness. What year truck, and I assume it's a four cylinder since you're posting in the 4 banger lounge?

Here's a link I found... you can download your factory service manual as a compressed .pdf - the manual will tell you how to adjust the TPS by measuring the voltage at the ECU. Nissan Service Manuals
