Linkages came off Craftsman Eager 1 lawn mower. Where do they belong..help !

When my husband was cleaning the carburetor, two linkages came off and he does not know where they came from.
He needs to know how the 2 linkages hook up to the carburetor assembly. One linkage has a small spring at one end. The other linkage doesn't. Can you help him please ? Thanks in advance for ANY help

The spring goes into a small arm/bracket bolted on with the intake and the linkage on the spring attaches to the lower hole in the governor arm.
The other linkage goes from the top hole of the governor arm to the front hole on the right side (as viewed from the operator's position) of the throttle shaft plate.
The carb will have to be removed to reinstall the linkage, easiest is to remove the muffler and then the intake bolts, leave the intake attached to the carb, install linkages then rebolt all.

Just a couple pics to go with BFHFixit's description;

Good Luck....
