Unhappy Toro 826 (38150 from 1979) Throttle Not Working

I have a monster Toro that is older than me. I just cleaned the carb and changed out the oil which really needed doing, but something is misaligned with the throttle control now and I can't for the life of me figure out what it SHOULD look like and what went wrong, if something popped off I didn't notice, or if there is a piece missing, or if I just have it stupid misaligned.

Does anyone have a working Toro of this model who could perhaps snap me a couple photos of what that area (throttle control behind/under the carb) is supposed to look like so I can maybe diagnose and repair?

Welcome to the forum!

If you can post the exact model number of the engine, that might help people. And pictures of your current throttle & governor linkage setup would also be useful, to at least give people a starting point.

Model Number

Model number is 38150
Serial number is 9009065

I'm not sure if this is model number for the machine itself or for the engine but it was the only model tag info I saw one it.

I will definitely try to get some good pics tomorrow. I've been trying to pour through YouTube videos about throttle regulators and haven't found anything at looks quite right.

I appreciate the help.

how much easier is it to handle now? have you had any safety concerns after removing? did you remove the entire wiring harness around the handlebars that go to the switches? I want to remove them as well but i want to get rid of all the wiring associated with them.

Mine's a little different because my throttle control is on the dashboard, but there is not much to connecting the throttle cable. The piece of duct tape on the throttle cable was just a marker so that I could reconnect the cable at exactly the same location in the clamp during reassembly.

That's for the snowblower. There will probably be a decal on top of the engine, right where the spark plug wire pokes through, that reads:
MODEL TYPE CODE

The engine info will be stamped into the blower cover between that decal and where the spark plug wire emerges.

Edit: Look at the bottom right corner of the first image in one of my other posts:
