Help me connect the throttle lever to the carburetor - Simplicity 860

I've dug and dug through manuals trying to find a diagram of how this is supposed to look.

I've salvaged a 2005 Simplicity 860 Snowthrower
I've had to change the carburetor, but the throttle handle seems to barely affect the carburetor throttle itself.

The handle goes all the way down to a levering mechanism, which is attached by a spring to another small levering mechanism that has a rod which controls the carb throttle.

Somehow these two mechanism are supposed to interact, but I'm missing something...when I pull the handle up (to open the throttle) the throttle itself barely moves...like there is some kind of disconnect.

Can anyone provide a picture of what this is supposed to look like, if anyone has a Simplicity 860, or another snowblower that operates similarly?

Help me Snow B Forum...you're my only hope.

Welcome to the forum, your throttle is operated via the governor, did you put the carb and its linkage back in the same order? and did you try to start your engine? I'll try to find you a link for your carb set up.

Not knowing your engine type here's a vid on a Briggs but you can search donyboy's collection to find your type. Good Luck
