Throttle damper?

Hi folks,
Just wondering if anyone knows what the damper is for on the throttle linkage on the fuel pump.
I left it off by accident after changing the advance solenoid and the throttle pedal felt so much better. Does anyone know if I'm doing any damage anywhere by leaving it off?

if the damper is off and you rapid style hit the gas pedal the power will kick in with a kick....with it on the power delivery kicks in smoothly.

It's just to make things a little smoother. Everyone takes it off :L
It's a 'yank it off with yer hand' job :tongue:
yep, old skool only :mad:
