I just cleaned out the carb. Installed it [linkage] same way it came off. Started right up, but there was no throttle responce. Now hear is the question. Do I need the air cleaner on and the breather tube on, for it to run right.

The air cleaner and tube won't affect throttle. Move the throttle control and see what linkages are moving, and where that transfer of motion stops. That can help indicate where the problem is. It could just be that the throttle shaft in the carb is stuck.
