Can anyone post a picture of the throttle cable and how it mounts to the carb? I can't seem to remember how it goes on as I have had it apart for a while

The only cable to the carb should be your choke.

 

The throttle cable will go to a pivoting bracket that bolts to the block with one screw ( near the fuel pump).

From there a spring goes to the bottom of the governor arm. Then there is a solid rod that will go from the top of the governor arm over to the top of the carb.

 

There are a few minor differences in how they mount but this is the basic set up.

 

If you can take a picture of the Carb side of your engine and possibly the pieces you have, that would make it easier to explain.

 

Good luck, Chris

I don't have any pics of mine. Can maybe get something later today. I think Chris is right, but would have to look to be sure. And it's cold and dark out there!

Just out of curiosity here, WHICH 1450 are we talking about? There are the older ones, the 'open side' tube frames, and the 'closed side' tube frames.

I'm thinking from the title, the Super chief is the older model with the crank across the frame.

Here's a couple pics from my Super Chief. Looks light the battery cable got in the way on the first pic. Might be better to try another one this afternoon.

The red arrow is the throttle cable.

That would be more like the pics I posted. I'll see if I can get a better one here in a bit. Wind chill is about 6° right now!
