OK, basically you've shown me the same picture I have in my owners manual, which hasn't helped much.
You're advice jives with what I have ascertained on my own. Thanks for that.
That hole you're referring to, is sort of used and shiny looking, so I've determined that it's probably the one, but that is not the whole problem
The arm from the governor to the slotted dohicky on the south end of the throttle contol arm (with the red plastic handle), does it go over or under the engine intake? It sort of flopped down underneath, and I can rotate it back up but I'm not sure if that is correct or not. I think it should be above it.
Can't find a picture anywhere.
Best view I've had so far is of someone showing how an Arien snowblower linkage works on Youtube, and that was just a fleeting view, since the camera work was not so great.
I even tried to look at some new units to compare but they all have their carb covers on, so you can't see anything. (Should have taken some pictures first I guess, too soon old, too late smart)
When I connect everything, and move the throttle arm up and down, there isn't much movement, if any at the carb end of things.
Kind of looks to me like if it starts it's going to be stuck on wide open, since the little spring on the carb doesn't seem capable of returning both the governor and the carb back to where it looks like they should be. On that point, I don't see what purpose the large spring on the back of the the slotted dohickey is for, it doesn't seem to actually do anything.
I may be confused on this point, help me out here.
I guess what i need is a drawing showing the governor and carb arms connected properly. No luck so far.
