    I pulled the carb off my edger to clean it out. Of course, the darn govenor spring popped off and I can't figure out how to get it back on.

    Which end goes to the engine side? Long end or circular? Where does it attach on the carb? I've got about 3 open slots.

    I've pulled this carb off before, but had trouble with the linkage...this time...the darn spring. It does run though, so that's good! I dug up an old thread I created, but my picture of the spring wasn't good enough.

    You rock Rob! Thanks so much!

    I had taken two pics before I took it apart...but they were mostly of the linkage. So this time, I got the linkage correct...but no dice on the spring.
