The best way is to remove it so you don't cause any damage to the screws or other components. I do not remember if there is room for a thin-headed 1/4" drive ratchet, but you can sometimes use one with a 1/4" hex socket and a short screwdriver bit. Grind the bit down as short as possible if it helps. The aluminum and the threadlock holds these babies in awful tight. Worst case is remove the throttle body and replace the gasket when reassembling. I know it's frustrating. Good thing is you know how to save some money.

1990 ford 302 efi running rich, surging idle

Checked throttle unit? Presume it's clean but may not be adjusted correctly or the ECU has had no time to reset itself with the throttle sensor. Sometimes can take some time adjusting correct mix after new setup. Are Lamba sensors new?

My 1986 Ford F-150 5.0 EFI runs good, but when I start it it revs to 1700 rpm untill I give it a little gas then it drops to normal rpm. How do I stop it from the high revs when started?

Does it rev high when started cold or hot? If it does it either hot or cold, check the throttle position sensor on throttle body. If that is not bad, then check the automatic choke sensor.

Truck runs like ****

You have checked the fuel pressure? Do you have a check engine light? As for the tank filling up the wrong one, that is caused from a bad tank select valve on the frame rail.

The air mixture screw does not make my mixture richer or leaner

Unless your vehicle is really old and has a carburetor there shouldn't be an air mixture screw. Air and fuel mixture ratios on engines with Electronic Fuel Injection or EFI are controlled by the vehicle computer witch receives and sends information to and from a slew of different sensors like the oxygen sensors, throttle position sensor, the idle air control valve, Etc. Chances are you have EFI on your vehicle. If your engine is running rough or lacks power, try a complete tune up. New spark plugs/wires, new fuel filter, new air filter, oil and filter change, new oxygen sensors. Try running a bottle of injector cleaner and a bottle of water remover through the vehicle and see if it helps. Hope this helps.

No. AOD trans from 1985 is hydraulic shift. You need to hook up the Throttle valve cable from the drivers side of the trans to the carb. Is this hooked up.

It uses too much fuel. 2,6 liter per 10 km.

You need to replace the sensors,,Throttle PositioningSensor, OXYGEN sensors, Mass Air Flow. after which your truck will run nicer and use less fuel.
