By the looks of it, The throttle control/cable will have to be taken off the machine and the large rivet holding the handle arm to the control body tightened up. This can be done by clamping it in a vise or laying it on the back of a vise and hitting the rivet with a large drift punch, Go a little at a time because you can get it too tight.....
