Default Honda GX620 throttle springs

The remote throttle plate on my Honda GX620 has 2 springs, the large one looks like its not the right one. It's too long and does nothing? The other spring is smaller and seems to provide some function. Does any one have part numbers or pictures of this arrangement? What are the springs for?

Default Thanks!

If you don't know what a Honda twin throttle plate looks like that would be valuable. Looking didn't help me.

Sometimes it takes multiple pairs of eyes to catch something, and JT, thread isn't usless without pics. Doesn't apply to every thread. You could easily look it up online.

well there should be up to four springs in fact if you have remote throttle and remote choke

ANd JT is right, over the years and with model changes the throttle control plate changed
for the GX twins quite significantly.
Which one you are dealing with, we can't tell!

Anyways.. I'll go with the four spring remote control plate since that's for all I know the most recent one:
Now for the springs
two identical short ones (look identical to me that is)
one on the choke control lever one on the throttle control lever both as return springs

and two on the 'lower' edge of the control plate (the ones I think you are referring to)
a shorter one (as the manual choke return spring)
and a much longer hooked one (for the throttle control)
both are mainly (if not exclusively *headscratch*) used by the choke knob rod (manual choke)

So actuate the manual choke if it's still on the engine,
see if it tensions on the throttle slightly with the help of the 'long' spring at full extension
the shorter one is the return to ensure it's releasing properly.

If you do not have any choke knob on the engine any longer (remote control only)
find the manual choke control.. it's
tucked away on the backside of the plate left to the choke control lever.
it protrudes slightly above the plate and ccl with just a small eyelet..
use that eyelet instead to test the movement of the springs.

So yeah, if everything is hooked up correctly,
the longer spring doesn't seem to have much of a function at first,
until you fully engage the choke that is
All springs technically are of the same length from what I can tell, it's the hooks that change in length... nevermind

'sid

PS see. no pics are harder to wrap your head around

Most of the people on this forum aren't going to go spend their time Googling for a pic to help you out. If you don't post something here, most people move on without helping you. That's just how people are *shrug.

So to help us help you, walk outside and take a pic of the throttle plate for us so that we know what model you are dealing with

After I posted I looked on Sears Parts and found parts diagram and looking at parts descriptions I now know what the 2 springs do.
