Carburetor installation

Hi, first off thanks for everyone who has contributed to this site. Without you'll I would not be where I'm at now with these carbs. Anyhow, I got my carbs all cleaned and ready to go back in and for the life of me cannot remember how the acceleration thorttle cable goes back on. I have it on but it doesn't feel right. I feel like there's too much tension on it. I attached a photo how I have it hooked up. Is this correct?

yea, thats not right. I dont recall how its supposed to be, but in that position, there is a chance the cable end will come out of the lever.

It looks close, but the cable needs to be slightly deeper in the slot shown in the picture, so then the end will rotate to the right, letting the cable slip into the other slot.

Might need to rotate the carb lever a bit to allow this all to happen.

That is definitely not right. Can you post a picture showing a larger area? I'm assuming you still have both throttle cables (I converted mine to a single cable) according to the manual you are supposed to attach the cables before installing the carbs. The cables must be completely straight from where they connect to the carb. I can't get to my bike right now to see how they connect.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Here's another picture. The carbs are off and I put the deceleration cable on first and then the acceleration cable

Still doesn't look right to me. The cable end hasn't rotated enough into the slot, shouldn't be kinked 90. Also the adjustment ferrule isn't seated in the hook or locked down with the nuts.

Garage
It looks like the housing/bracket might be pinched half-way closed, preventing the cable from rotating to the proper position once that lead (?) cylinder is pushed into the hole. The cable should rotate to the right so there isn't any bend in the cable from the cable jacket straight to the swaged cylinder.

Yes, it isn't seated far enough. For the record, I have put my throttle cable on several times with the carb installed. The cable needs to rotate 90* so it is in line, and not kinked, as previously stated.
