Check to see that the carb slide or butterfly is opening with the throttle (depends on which style of carb you have). Will have to look through the airbox intake side of carb. Sounding like you may have bigger issues though.

If the throttle cable broke the thumb throttle would not return to the rest position because the spring that returns the thumb throttle is in the carb attached to the slide so if the thumb throttle works as normal your slide and jet needle are going up and down.

Your reverse override button is probably malfunctioning. Check the button and the wiring for it.

Cable not broke, it goes back to position as it should. Not sure what override button is supposed to do, but I pressed it and nothing happened. I feel that there is a lot of slack in line. Going to try and adjust that today..

The spring goes where the red arrows are.

The wire the blue arrow is pointing at goes where the other blue arrow is.

Your missing a cover that screws on where the green circle is.

You do know that that is the oil injection pump that you took a picture of right? Right above it in the pic is the carb. Take the Air filter box off and look inside the carb and hit the throttle.
