Ok I am an engineer but for the life of me am at a loss in figuring out how to install the choke return spring. Best I am tell the center of the spring (the wound part) goes over the little protrusion near one of the arms. so where does the hook go, and where does the end turn 90 degrees out go?

Feeling stupid in Tennessee.

The wound part of the spring goes/slides over the choke shaft and fits under the "dome" on the bell-crank. The bend fits through the small hole in the top of the bell-crank dome and gets bent over to keep the spring from coming loose. The hook/loop goes over the stud to the right (right, while looking at it as if it were mounted on the car) of the choke shaft. Now, just try to do it without scratching any paint.

Ahhh! So I had it all wrong! So the choke shaft has to come out, slide spring over it, then it goes back in, butterfly would have to come out first. I suppose the alternative is to put the coil spring from tractor supply back on it! And I do still have some baling wire in the barn...

Thanks much!
