Choke Linkage

18 Horse Briggs & Stratton Model 310777.
Hi All,
I'm looking for a diagram or picture of how the choke links to the throttle cable. The Walbro carb was off for a while and I've forgotten how this reattaches.
Thanks!

Look at the carb from the air filter end. The hole on the choke shaft on the right side is where the choke link fits, and it hooks in from the underside with the loop in the link angling away from the carb. Then look on the side of the engine at the throttle control. There is a slotted spot toward the top left corner. The looped end of the linkage goes through this spot, where it comes into contact with the arm that moves up when you raise the throttle on the mower.

Ok, that makes sense. So the clip dosen't physically connect to the throttle cable, it just pushes the choke shut?
