WHY WON'T MY IDL-E2 TPS TERMINALS REGISTER OHMS WHEN ROTATED BY THROTTLE SHAFT BUT DEFLECTS OHMS WHEN ROTATED BY HAND?

1988 Toyota Pickup • 200,000 miles

I loosened the mounting screws on my TPS & it won't regiser ohms when rotated all the way back & forth. I removed it from the throttle body & it the deflects ohms when turning internal butterfly spindle by hand. Why won't it just get within the correct range w/mounts loose & rotating Clckws/Crntrclkws?

Turn TPS clockwise till reads continuity tighten. Place.022 between throttle stop and lever if it slide then reconnect your done
