    when working on an f series carb, the butterfly valve slides between a slot on the airvane shaft, just pull it with pliers from the Backside of the carb.

    vipermanz's $7 mistake of the day:)

    It's always good to inform others to prevent things like this, of course I've made even worse mistakes working on old Briggs motors:realmad: (when I make a mistake I get really mad!)
    Did ya break the butterfly or what?:)
