I took the carburetor off and cleaned it. However, when I replaced it, I didn't remember how the linkages were attached to the throttle and choke, i.e., which links went where. If I could find a picture, I think that would help.
Thanks for your help.
One more notch on the old lawnmower blade for member successes. First 4 posts I read this a.m., along with 1 PM, all declaring victory on their problem at hand. Glad you figured it out and it works as it should. Congratulations, and hope to see you visit the forum on occasion!
