The link on the carb looks to be in the wrong hole. I believe out goes in the upper hole. If it's in the wrong hole it should reverse the butterfly. I think. I'll have to look at my HT20 tomorrow. I just had my carb off a few days ago

The throttle and choke cables lay in the 2 recesses below the ignition coil and each has a clamp to hold it's cable after adjustment.

Alright thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it. This is what I have.... when I pull the throttle to slow it pulls the carb wide open, and when I push the cable to fast it closes the throttle butterfly completely. Is this normal? Also I need a whole new tie rod and ball joints. Both my joints are shot and there is no chance getting the ball joints off the old tie tod, they are rusted solid on there. Anybody know where I can get one? I can't find one on the internet.

No. That is the opposite of what it should do.
McMaster Carr sells tie rod ends.

Alright guys, I think the problem is the carter model n carb. It has way to much play in the throttle shaft, and the governor over compensates causing the engine to severely over rev. Can somebody post a picture of what the carb looks like with the cable set all the way to fast and all the way to slow? Just so I know i have it all hooked up right. If I cant figure this out it is going off to the small engine shop... I need this tractor running before the snow hits.
