    I recently had to remove my carb in order to work on my heads. In doing so I detached the Throttle spool and return spring. Now that I am putting everything back together, I am having difficulty figuring out the correct position of the throttle return spring.

    This site has given me a couple of good links regarding overall carb installation and repairs but I haven't found anything that addresses this specific issue.

    Does anyone have experience with this or point me in the right direction for a reference?

    Does this help? You didn't mention which one.

    Thanks Glider.

    This is, indeed, one of the diagrams I have referenced. While it has all the parts, it doesn't give the exact position of the throttle spring (part # 5); specifically, where the tab hooks into the carb body.

    I will check out the Self Help section.
