I'm trying to get a picture of how the throttle connections

Customer Question

I'm trying to get a picture of how the throttle connections are made on my Tecumseh Model LEV115 MRD mower. I took the carburator off to rebuild it and made the mistake of not checking to see how where everything was connected so that I could put it back together again and be able to adjust the speed. As it is now, the throttle is wide open and will only start periodically. Otherwise, it floods.
