Throttle linkage set-up

I have a Honda GVC-160-ABHH engine on my mower. The parts list shows one of the throttle linkage springs as a throttle return spring, however, I can't see how that works because the spring has the rod running through the middle of it and the spring ends are hooked up to the same points as the rod. Anybody?

My gvc 160 is on a power washer, the spring is hooked in the same hole as the rod at the carb and in a hole just below the rod on the governor control arm, looks to me like it is there to control slop as the linkage wears. Have a good one. Geo

That's what I thought it might be but it has nothing to do with returning the throttle. The engine is search/hunting (?) so I was wondering if that, not really hooked up to anything as a spring, was part of the problem. Guess I'm gonna have to put up with the surging or pull the carb and that's a real PIA.
Thanx!
Ps: Doesn't do it under load.

Try a heavy dose of SeaFoam or Chevron Techron in the fuel tank, if the obstruction is fuel/varnish related it will clean that up. Have a good one. Geo

Thanx, I've always faithfully used Sta-bil in the fuel and have done the Sea Foam thing and Star Tron and checked the fuel tank and lines and think maybe some sort of garbage may have gotten into a jet. Also, the fuel with alcohol sucks as it's caused problems with my Kaw ( $37 for a float needle, probably more now )and my boats outboard.
