I just got done rebuilding my K301 - it's in a '67 Toro I picked up last summer. I'm down to the last little fiddly bits, and I want to get this thing running so bad.
I am putting a new throttle and choke on it, but I'm not sure how this works. The manuals I have aren't very specific - even the original one that came with the tractor... And when I search for images online of other setups there appears to be several with all sorts of different L shaped or straight brackets mounted to the blower housing.
I just want to mount it up like this picture in the manual... but something just doesn't seem right about it. Like the spring has no purpose and the throttle wouldn't stay open or the spring would just pull it back shut again.
What am I not getting? Anybody have pictures of a setup similar to mine? The pictures below are what I'm working with.
