throttle linkage picture on 7117 kt17 series 1

Recommended Posts

Got all the parts I have been missing on my 7117 to get it back together. I was missing some linkage pieces and got it all ordered up. I have what I think is the last spring to put on but I think something is still wrong with it. The throttle cable comes up on the right side of the carb to a lever. From the lever there is a spring that goes to the governor linkage. On the opposite side of the carb is the other end of the governor linkage with a rod that goes back to the carb to open the carb up. When I put it all together with the spring the last time, no matter which position the throttle was in, the engine wanted to run at full throttle and not idle down, so I have something wrong. I was wondering if someone had a picture of what I need to do correctly. I got this tractor and the air cleaner was off and the linkage was all apart. I don't know how it is supposed to be originally and was looking for some guidance. If I can figure it out, I will post a picture of what I have done thus far. Thanks.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
