Ok here goes.First you need to disconnect the rods and springs that go from carb. to govenor arm on back of block.Then you have to come up with a good way to connect the cable to the carb. directly.This will entail a return spring and adding to the throttle lever.The problem here is if you have a "new style"carb.with the flat air cleaner then it gets more difficult.This is really a pain if you dont have the right carb. and parts.My suggestion is go to a local kart racing shop and see how it is done on a race kart.Cause to explain it is very difficult. hope this gives you some direction.
