Page 33 figure 26 show the same in a little larger picture. Regards, John Click to expand. Mine does not move like the butterly plate in the video, so I will need to re-look at the linkage tonight.

To adjust the governor, you would loosen the screw on the bottom of the governor arm and push the governor arm so the throttle is wide open.

I recently pulled the carb off to clean it up, reassembled and now am having issues getting the throttle linkage put back together.

One of the most important parts of your engine is the engine governor. In the event that they do need adjusted, here is how to do it.

Am I not seeing it, or is the throttle spring missing? If anyone else has some insight, please post.

Unfortunately I couldn't tell you where it goes, nor whether that particular carburetor has one, but I think most of them do. . . I may be getting somewhere.
