B&S Throttle Linkage & springs placement

Well, I suppose I forgot a step when I started working on this oldie but goodie... Namely, I should have taken a pic of the throttle linkage setup, so that I would know how it all goes back together.

I took the carb off & the tank off because water had made it's way into the tank, so I cleaned it out (rust & sludge), and cleaned the carb while I was in there... and reassembled it all. The engine runs, but obviously will not adjust the idle, or run at full power.

There should be 2 pics below, one with a pic of the carb, throttle, etc.. and the other is the springs and linkage removed... All are numbered... can anyone take a look and let me know where it all goes? (Match up letters & numbers).

Here's my model:
Model: 130992 Type: 1208 02 Code: 87012006

Thanks,
Rex Smith

First, the solid link isn't quite right (as best I can tell from the picture). The two Z-bends ("1" & "2") should be 90 degrees from one another, as well as straighten the link (there should be no arc). If you look closer to the vane arm (the area you have labeled "A") there is a hole just down the bend from the point in the picture - this is the hole to use (not the one pictured). Also, the link ("1" & "2") as well as the spring ("3" & "4") will go between A (lower hole mentioned above) and "C". "5" goes to "A" (upper hole (pictured)) and "6" goes to "D". Be sure to close up the loops ("5" & "6") on the governor spring. The smaller spring is an anti-flutter spring, by the way.
One item I can't see and may or may not be installed is the choke return spring. This is a coil-type spring on the choke shaft. You know you have it if when you move the throttle off choke and the choke does in fact open up.
Points "B" & "E" aren't used.

Woo Hoo! That did it! It's working NICE and strong... and when I engage the blade, it sounds & feels like a helicopter taking off! What POWER!

BTW - There IS a coiled choke-return spring - it's not very visible in the pic, but it's just right of the air-intake, and under the throttle control.

Thanks again for the assistance!
