    With the bar off & engine off, no. 3 will sit pointing at 10 o'clock (the fully open position), when engine is running & idling it will point at 2 o'clock (closed position)... because the bar is off the others will flap about & do as they please, if they're close on high revs it will cause a drop in power & smoke etc...
    If you get someone to rev the engine as you observe you will see the 3rd pot open as the revs rise.

    Your best bet will be to read up on the link Tony has posted & make your own mind up whether you attach the bar back on, bond the flaps fully open or replace the maninfold alltogether.
