I just put a new carb on my 318. And happy with the idling now and no surging so that's a win! But when i throttle up the tractor hardly revs up and at full throttle it dies. Possibly I have throttle linkage spring in wrong hole? I didnt adjust carb at all when i replaced it went from the box onto the intake and it started much easier and idles very nice so i figured all good? What adjustment should I have done on the carb before and after install? Ideas? Thanks!

I have the best luck mounting a new carb, then making the high-speed and low-speed circuit/needle settings according to the baseline recommended by the owners or service manual...then starting the engine, letting it warm up and fine-tuning both a little...if needed.
