Craftsman 357cc 30Ē 247.883961

Hi I recently picked this snowblower up. I think the previous own let it sit in snow and/or with salt all over it an a lot of it was rusted. I took most of the rusted pieces off and soaked them in evaporust and painted them. The only issue I have is the throttle control lever seems to keep getting loosened when I slide it to fast, it springs back towards slow. Iím not sure how to post pictures on here yet. Will replacing just the spring washer and nut holding down the lever onto the throttle control bracket help? I see part 951-11311 on the parts diagram but donít see the lever thatís bolts to the top of it. Thanks for any help.

Here is a video of the lever springing back.

Here is the lever Iím talking about. Of course itís the one part I didnít take a picture of before disassembly. Looking at it now, looks like a washer or the sling washer is supposed to be installed on top of it. I probably have it installed incorrectly. Any help is appreciated.

I’ve never taken that piece apart but I do recall a washer of some sort between the bolt and the lever.

The bolt at that pivot point needs to be rather tight to keep the motion of the lever snug and limited.
