In your third picture, the rod coming up through the bracket with the square top on it. The cable should come up from the bottom through the holes beside it and is held with cable nuts. The cable needs a 90 degree bend and go through the hole that can be seen in the square block. The block will need to be turned toward the cable and the set screw in the top holds it. It should be a model 14 Briggs. There is a good manual for that engine here that should show it, http://gardentractor...30pt-1-and-pt2/

I'm glad you found us. We have a couple of guys who are pretty sharp on 2 wheelers.

This is one of them, if Doug t says it then that is the way it should be.I'll have to find another reason to dig through my engine pile now
I don't know that I'd agree with that statement. I've been known to be wrong before, especially the older I get and the more feeble my mind becomes.
The two jam nuts in pic belong together on the top flange(I think), one on top one underneath,I'll get Doug approved sooner or later
I'm glad I didn't deprive you of an excuse to dig through your engines. I've seen the nuts placed both ways. I don't suppose it really makes a difference as long as you keep the cable from moving either direction.

On your carb question, I start by giving both jets two full turns out from bottom, set the high speed first(float bowl jet on bottom) with engine at full throttle (black smoke is to rich) then adjust low speed as you bring the rpms down, then repeat, should end up somewear between 1-11/2 turns out on both on average, but can be more or less on both,no two engines are exactly the same on this
I will give it a try! I finally have some free time tomorrow! After i repalce the brake belt im going to start messing with the mower!

Little update, i did not mess with my carb any but i did hook up the mower, it is 28 inches long and the deck is clean and made from aluminum! very well made in my opinion! I had it running and she mowed well!
I have a couple questions to ask, I read the transmission requires #2 cup Grease, were can i get this or the equivalent?
I am also interested in my options as far as restoring the tractor, were can i get parts? should i just buy parts tractors?
