Just got the rebuild kit for my Carter YF964S (thanks Carbking
) and was taking a closer look at the carb.
At the throttle shaft, there's a lever linked to the choke that moves with it and that the idle speed screw rests on. It has a tab (red arrow on the attached pic).that doesn't contact the carb body when the choke is full open - should it? If so it would require bending the link rod to keep the choke at full open. Is that something I should mess with or just leave as-is?
Also, there's a special screw (really flat head - yellow arrow in the pic) that wasn't attached to anything, but is just flopping around. What would it's function be and should I just put a nut on it to keep it secure? It looks like someone has cut it short with a hacksaw. Was it supposed to be longer and attach to anything?
Thanks for any thoughts on these things.
