Well guys, a little update. After finally getting the keepers in and reassembling ,the motor starts and runs! Yipppeeee, the only problem i'm having now is that it's revving extremely high and i can only run it by manipulating the throttle to keep it at a safe rpm, if it's set too low it will kind of stall itself out, but as soon as i raise it, the rpm's go through the roof. When under load it can maintain somewhat of an rpm, but there is defintely something wrong. Also, the arm that controls the throttle, i'm not sure exactly what hole that was set at, but i can see that it's surging when it's running, it appears loose and if i hold it with my hand i can maintain an rpm with no problem. Any idea what hole it should be at or how to adjust this piece? I mowed a few passes and ran it for some time and like i said under a steady load it does hold an rpm it just takes some tweaking and constant throttle adjusting to keep it at a good range.
