    So i mistakenly took the throttle linkage off the carb and i can only manage to get two full turns on the spring, leaving me with a sticky throttle. Has anyone made this mistake or know ha to get it back on? or know where to get a replacement?

    Just so you know that you are not alone.... I took it off. It was definitely a problem reattaching it.



    As I recall, I wound up the spring while the part it attaches to was off the shaft. Then when the spring was fully tensioned, slid it on the shaft and secured it. ....Then let out a big sigh of relief, and promised myself I wouldn't do that again.
