Hey guys, I could use some help. I just picked up a little buggy with a Champion 196. The engine runs but the idle has got to be 1/2 to 2/3 WOT. It’s so high that the throwout clutch never disengages. I can manually operage the butterfly valve on the carb and it’ll throttle down but for whatever reason, the butterfly gets pulled open pretty far by the spring and never returns to the idle setting. When I pull back and forth on the throttle assembly (that’s what I think the part is called - the actuating lever that controls the butterfly on the carb).
Here are some pics of the throttle assembly. What am I missing? If y’all need any other pics, I’d be happy to oblige.
Thank you for any insight … I’m no mechanic but I love to wrench.
