Throttle lever help.

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. 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.

The temper of said metal might have changed after baking it in that oven. causing it to flex when you move said throttle lever

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

The drag for the throttle lever is adjusted by the 10mm nut where it attaches. The large washer with the notch sits atop the lever with the notch engaged to prevent turning of washer when moving lever.

Thatís how i have the notched washer installed. I added a few washers in place of the spring washer and Iíll see if that changes it. Maybe I had too thick a layer of paint under where that lever bolts, and the heat softened it once the engine warmed, causing it to get loose. That hammerite paint is thick when brushed on. I marked the location of the nut to see if it actually loosens up this time. Iíll test it again after work.
