    I have a KE-4 with a Tillotson AJ23A carb and I took it apart a year ago and lost my pictures. I have a couple questions.

    1. Which way does the throttle butterfly plate go? Open part up, down, which side, does it matter?

    2. Is it supposed to go in the slot of the throttle shaft?

    3. Do I have the top linkage right?

    4. How does the spring go on?

    Thank You

    Here’s a couple of pics, Top one of a Mark 5 carb. Not sure what Merc
    the other is from, or if they are
    similar enough to yours, or show what you need to know.
