    Almost have it all together, but I am confused on a few levers...
    Are these in the right position? or is it suposed to be different?
    [​IMG]



    Is the lever (pink arrow) suposed to be under, or on top of that ledge (blue arrow)

    Is that lever (pink arrow) supose to be on top, or under that thing to the left of it?

    What does this lever do, where does it go? (same as the one shown in previous pictures)

    Yes they appear to in the coorect position. the lever w/ pink arrow point to it is the secondary throttle plate lock out. when your engine is cold this lever keeps our lead feet out of the secondarys :) when the chokr counter wieght (blue arrow) drops to lowest position it move lock out lever away from secondary throttle shaft pin, which in your pic's appears to be bent out away from carb.
    Good luck
    Wes

    the little rod that is next to the pink arrow, it goes threw the secondary throttle shaft.
    in the first pic you can bearly see that it is bend outward, it needs to be inline with the level with the pink arrow.

    and that brass rod that has alot of bends in it needs to be outside of choke housing, in the second pic it's stuck behind the seconday lock out.

    So I have to bend the rod so it's straight, not bent? Why would it be bent? Is the lever suposed to hook up to that rod?

    yep, bend it straight. it would be bent because someone wanted to have the secondaries all the time, instead of when the choke is off. its suppost to touch it stopping it from turning. not nessicarly hook up to it.

    grab it with some pliers and bend it back, and put some muscle into it, not too much or youll bend it too far.
