Hey guys!

I'm going over my carburettors and noticed that the outlet controller (no idea what it's called) are mounted wrong. Becuase of this it does'nt close or open properly.
How do I mount it back to it's proper position?
And what consequences can this lead to if not fixed?

I'm pretty sure they are backwards? Did you tear down your carbs? I think if you break them apart and rotate the throttle around and ut em back together you should be fine. That throttle plate should be to the outside of the linkage not the inside like in you photos. Am I right here guys?

I took the carbs out for inspection and cleaning and found them like this. Also noticed that the boltheads are on the other side and are accesable from the other side (air inlet) but they wont budge and i'm afraid that the boltheads will be damaged.

Like RogerCallen said,
split the carbs into 2 then rotate the throttles around and put it back together without taking the "butterfly's" out. You can see the screws are still peened so it looks like no one actually removed them just put it together backwards
