Just be sure that when it's all said and done that there's positively no friction from the retainer on the PP shaft itself. It has to be absolutely free to move w/o any hindrance.

The throttle blade correction looks spot-on. I like the "patriotic" look of the retainer and accelerator pump piston assembly! But seriously, those are said to be among the best available.
