My son just picked up a 224. The carb needs some tuning but first we need to get some decent fuel run through it. The seller said he cleaned the carb but the fuel is a few years old. I’m not sure if he hooked up the throttle spring in the correct holes. There are a lot of holes in both the throttle side and the governor side. He had it in one of the lower holes on the governor side. The spring didn’t seem to be stretching at all. We moved it up a few holes and that seemed to help a little. Where’s it supposed to be?

Can you post pictures of the carb and spring? What is the problem that makes you think it's not in the correct location? Have you tried running it?

Runs poorly. Idle circuit is the primary issue. We need to replace the fuel filter and run it some more. It sat for a few years.

Not a believer in sea foam or any fuel additive, but a big fan of clean fuel systems and fresh gas. Have tried to "cheat" in the past, and it always comes back to bite you. Can clean the carb and get it running with the old gas, but as soon as that bad gas gets into the clean carb it causes issues all over again.

JMO, the shortest route to success is often the one without shortcuts.
