I'm wondering if the shaft or the hole in the baseplate is worn or has a flat-spot, from the "hefty" springs...

It just seems to me like the thing to do is convert it to cable so you don't have to deal with this dangerous situation ever again. There's a reason they don't use your kind of linkage any more.

The carb is 2 months old, the hefty springs are the springs that Auto zone sells for carb return springs, highly doubt they've worn a flat spot etc....... linkage doesn't appear to be binding any where thru-out it's travel. Question do weber carbs have a sweet spot (resting) and do I need to adj the idle mixtrure screws etc...... I've never done this on a weber so any help would be welcome.
