Yardworks 4.5 carb. linkage Help !!

Hi I had the carb. off to clean it and now I can't get the two linkage rods right.

Did a little searching on google and can't seem to find anything ?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I found these numbers on the mower deck, didn't see anything on the engine..

Do you know what kind of engine is on it?

Thanks for the pictures I plan on tinkering with it tomorrow (the beginning of my long weekend).

One thing I noticed from the pictures you supplied. It looks almost like mine but slightly different. My lawn mower (Yardworks4.5) doesn't have a throttle control. Both rods/spring attach from the governor arm to the top of the carb.

Everything looks almost the same as the pics with the exception of the throttle arm.

I haven't had any time but I plan on tinkering with it tomorrow.

I should have took a picture, I need to try and remember that for the next time Finding the parts manual would be a bonus.. I've been searching. Any more input is welcomed.

Cheers
Wayne.

Wayne,

If you don't have a throttle control the link with the spring will hook to a stationary tang/bracket next to the carb.

You can download a complete service manual for your engine here; Toprake - A Cut Above


Good Luck

Also if you have the tang instead of throttle, it goes on the intake/carb bolt closest to the engine.
I have had some come in with it installed on the outer bolt after attempted repair, and the spring tension is too much and the mower will not start.

This is exactly what I have done. I will move it to the inner bolt tomorrow.

Thanks for the input.
