Pressure washer throttle spring

My gf received an old Homelite pressure washer from her father. It had gas in it and had been sitting for who know how long.

It was tough to get it started but I finally did and ran Seafoam through the tank in hopes of cleaning any gunk.

I noticed that it would idle very high. I found what looks to be the throttle spring not connected and hooked it as below which seems to have resolved the problem.

Can anyone tell me if this is the right location for this spring? Seems to be running normal but I just want to confirm.

No, the spring connects into the same little black plastic piece that the linkage connects to on the carburetor.

Oh - thanks. I'm gonna have to figure out how it can connect. I didn't see a good spot there.

If there isn't a tiny hole drilled right next to the linkage hole, then it goes into the same hole the linkage goes in.
