Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

Machine details:
MTD sit on mower RH 115/76

Formula 12.5HP

Tecumseh engine OHV

Model OV358EA

Spec 206950G

Unit was purchased second hand and the linkeage from the throttle bracket to the carburetor is part missing, I could make replacements if I knew what the looked like and how they are configured.

Hope this helps

Thank you for choosing Just Answer for the solution to your problem.
My name is Hank, and I am going to assist you with this.

I have uploaded the manual for this engine for you.
But I highly suggest you buy the parts, rather than make them. Any differences in overall length, no matter how slight, will have a major impact on the performance of the engine. Simply bending the linkages can cause the engine to run way too fast, way too slow - or even not at all.

I have found the two linkeage rods however in the manual it is not clear what goes where I could perhaps e mail you some pics of what I have and perhaps you could work it out.

Can't seem to find an option to attached pics in this system so if you couldsend yur e mail id I will send pics.
