My throttle cable was split. The PO had but a number of clamps on it - I 
thought he did this becuase the cable was spliting. However, I purchased a 
new cable and managed to get it installed without too much difficulty. Now, 
however, the throttle wants to stay at idle. I have a Yanmar, with a spring 
internaly on the throttle. I now know that the PO had put the clamps on the 
cable to put tenions on the cable shaft. so it would stay at whatever 
throttle setting he put it at.

I suspect there is some missing hardware that counteractst the spring in the 
engine, but I don't know what or where it would be. Anyone have any
