Tecumseh Throttle Linkage Correction

I inherited a Craftsman snowblower with a 5 HP(?) Tecumseh engine, model # 143-666252, S/N 6125D. The engine is around 22 to 25 years old. The previous owner rebuilt the carb, but didnít seem to hook up the linkage correctly. The engine starts and idles fine, but when you slide the throttle lever, the carb remains at idle. The linkage presently goes from the throttle lever to a spring, which attaches to the governor. From the governor it attaches by a rod to the butterfly on the carb. How should the linkage be routed? The attached picture shows the throttle lever at WOT.
Any advice?
