    ok guys i had to replace my old engine. I put the fh500v -so2 new one on today. thanks to restorob it wasnt very hard to do. The only problem i have is the throtle and choke controls. When i took the cables off the old engine i did not make a note of which control goes on which place. If some one had a pic it would be great. thanks again.

    The choke cable goes in the top lever (hole) the throttle cable can go into either hole on the bottom lever depending on which way your throttle control handle operates the inner wire.

    In other words, If you push your throttle handle forward to speed the engine up put the cable in the top hole on the bottom lever.
