Keep in mind I am a novice.

I took out my carburetors and cleaned them. When I went to put them back in, I reviewed all my diagrams and discovered that I should have two throttle cables. I have only one. It is the one on the outside of the handlebars (The 'pull' cable'?). Now, I have had this running in my garage for about ten minutes but then could not get it started again.

Here are my questions:

1. Should I have two cables? (I suspect yes)
2. what do they each do?
3. Would the lack of one of the cables lead to flooding of the carburetor?

1...It's a safety thing... Not absolutely necessary, but recommended.........
2 ... It's a "positive return" ...(can manually force the carbs closed)....
3...No, not usually..........
