Default Re: No spring back in throttle

Thanks for the reply. I did some more investigating and I believe the problem is in the carb. I am new to this so please excuse my ignorance. There are no and the cable is moving freely but when I turn the throttle it does not spring back to idle position. So I took off the carb to see what was going on. This is where I am lost. There is a spring inside a brass sleeve and the cable is inside the spring and it goes through the slot in the brass sleeve. There is a needle that goes into a hole. It seems as if the brass sleeve is too tight and does not move very easy. Should it be like this? Also, when it is at full throttle the pin should be out of the hole correct. I am not sure how that mechanism works. Thanks.
