Can you identify this part?

Can someone identify the name of the part in the pictures?

I wanted to know the name of the spring located behind the plate of the throttle lever. It seems to be a little old and makes the throttle not responsive. I'll move the throttle down and the governor won't move until the throttle is halfway down and then the governor will move a lot all of a sudden.

I'm thinking I should replaced this but don't know where to find it.

Thanks, guys.

I dunno... Just looks to me like the choke rod. There's no spring there.

It's the spring that's directly connected to the throttle. The spring them is connected to the carburetor linkage which is connected to the governor. I guess it exists so that a large change in the throttle results in a small change in the governor.

In the picture, the square outlines this round metal plate. The spring is located behind it (you can't see it in the picture).

This is exactly what's happening to me. Thanks!

Although not sure what to do since it looks like I just can't buy that part.

What is the name of the entire mechanism that includes the throttle, spring and carburetor linkage? I guess I have to buy the whole thing. =(

Great. Thanks for the help!!

The only problem is that it's $28 bucks on ebay. $28 for a simple spring. The amount I've spent is starting to add up. This hobby is costing me more than I expected!

New Tecumseh parts are slowly starting to dissapear. I have only one of those controls new in the box, but im holding on to it because i have at least half a dozen machines with similar Tecumseh's on them.
