Where do the springs go on a carburetor?

What does the spring in a carburetor do?
On top of the throttle body of a fuel injected motor or carburetor is a butterfly valve, which opens when the accelerator pedal is pushed and the cable pulls it open. Involved in this process of closing the valve is the throttle return spring as it actually closes the valve.
What does a throttle return spring do?
The throttle return spring pushes the throttle closed when the driver lets off the gas. A weak or failed throttle return spring will prevent the throttle from easily returning to its resting position. This can result in engine racing and unintended acceleration.
Do I need a throttle return spring?
Not needed since the throttle arm has its own spring. But if you find your throttle too touchy, you can install an extension arm to alter the geometry and slow the action down a little. If you go that route, you probably will want a return spring.
Are throttle cables universal?

What is a carburetor throttle valve?
The throttle valve is installed in the intake air system of the combustion engine. The opening angle of the valve determines how much fresh air or air/fuel mixture flows into the cylinders (carburettor engines, for example).
