Post some pics of your carb mounted so we can see how it all fits; a picture tells a thousand words

Ok checked that out and i now know that I am missing a spring but what links the actual throttle cable to the carb(what moves the butterfly). The only linkage hooked to the butterfly now comes from the governor. I'm sure the answer is right there but I'm just not getting it.

That's correct. Your karts throttle cable connects to the govenor. Then the govenor linkage connects to your carbs butterfly. That's the only way the govenor system could limit engine RPM.

But if you want, you could remove your engines govenor system, then conect your karts throttle cable directly to the carbs butterfly. Here's some info about doing that mod: http://www.mokaioutdoors.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=254

I understand what you are saying but the throttle cable hooks into this mechanism that has springs and rods on it but nothing from the cable or the mechanism hooks the the arm on the engine governor or the butterfly on the carb thats where a good picture would come in handy
