MAG 2000 Throttle Rod Assembly

Question

fubar

yesterday my (Throttle Rod) came apart from the throttle. Does anyone have a picture, or could explain how the two are connected? I'm not sure if I'm missing any parts or not. What keeps the rod connected to the throttle?

I just replaced the handle on my mag 2000 the throttle cable/rod assembly connects to the throttle handle with a screw there is a collar that goes throughthe handle and the screw holds the cable to the handle.

Go to strikemasters web site and they have some pretty good pictures of the assembly.

WW

PS did it detach from tne handle or from the carb?

Surface Tension

EDIT. Not sure if you were looking for advice on the following or not. I'll leave it because its a common issue to lose or damage the spring.

The throttle cable is more of a stop. There is a spring attached to the plate/linkage of the governor linked to the carb. The other end of the spring goes to a post on the case of the engine. As you squeeze the throttle the plunger depresses. The end of that plunger is where the idle speed stop screw is located. The spring will pull the throttle plate open which increases the RPMs. There is a fin that is connected in that linkage that is mounted next to the cooling fins on the fly wheel. So say you have the throttle held wide open with no load on the auger. The air going over that fin will move the linkage so that the RPMs will stay at a safe threshold. As you put a load on the auger while drilling the engine, that relation to fin and air from the cooling fins on the fly wheel will keep the RPMs at a constant. That is how this governor works.

So that is why they use a spring and not just any spring. You'll need to get a replacement for that auger. Any authorized service center will have the appropriate spring. When you go to install the spring you'll see two locations on the linkage. Pick the further location for a little more RPMs.

Thanks guys

From the carb

The throttle spring is still there and I can raise the speed by moving it. It is the throttle rod that fell off the carb. Is there a clip of some kind that holds it in place?

I was at the web site and all they had was a picture of the throttle rod

      The sweltering heat, high humidity values, and intermittent thunderstorms have certainly provided some challenges for anglers but even as we enter the dogdays of summer the fish are still on the chow! As we all know there is never any shortage of action when one sets out to target Bass. Smallmouth Bass can be found along the deep weed lines, rocks, and sunken humps. Try using a Drop-Shot Rig tipped with a Leech. Largemouth on the other hand can be found working the weeds inside and outside the lines using Tubes, Spinner Baits, and Carolina Rigs. In the early morning, try working docks, shoreline structure and swimming platforms next to sharp drop-offs. Of course, usually by this time of year we have shifted our focus to chasing Large Slab Crappies. The weed beds are holding large numbers of both Crappies and Sunfish. Pay especially close attention to the cabbage along deeper drop-offs. Slip-Bobbers using live bait or plastics, Small Swim Baits, Spinners, Beetle Spins are all working well, these buggers have been hungry!! The Walleye bite is also one that has yet to relinquish to the torrid, humid conditions. A lot of techniques have still been producing good numbers of fish. Anything from pulling Spinners in the weeds, Lindy Rigs, Slip-Bobbers, jigs tipped with Leeches, Crawlers or Chubs… Cranks, Shiver Minnows and the list goes on!! It really is Dealer’s Choice it seems, trolling Cranks on the mid-lake flats has been best toward the evening hours until after dark, Spinners have been enticing them during the mid-day, as well as jigging raps for the walleye found out over the deep structure. -Cheers!

      I live just off the Rum near walbo. Water high deer flies horrible. Yes good smallie and walleye when water down to normal. To high right now in my opinion.

      I wonder if there is any connection to the fact that when the dnr guys pull their seine on my beach they get 150 or so nice perch? Run up to 4 or 5 inches.   They seine at a number of places around the lake 4 times every July and have been for many years.   This is way above what I can remember as typical.  And that is without the young of the year which are still too little to show up much.

      I fished last Tuesday and Wednesday. Caught 5 walleyes in Lower WF on lindy and leach. 4 of the fish were caught within an hour on Tuesday early evening. Mornings were slow both days. Heading up again on Monday for a few days. Hopefully weather will stay stable.

      Ya I looked and couldn't find any results either.

      Bumping this post. Back out of 2 harbors with my nephew today. Went 3 for 7 with 2 coho and 1 laker. Nephew had a snafu with the net that cost us a 15-20lb laker at the boat. Tougher bite today. Caught coho on 7 colors of lead and Lakers came on riggers at 50'
