Adjustments for New Throttle Cable.

I was wondering what the adjustmenst should be for a new throttle cable. I am refering to where the cable goes into the carb. When I bought my sled the guy put all new cables on. I don't know if he put them were they where originally or not.
I can't seem to get the motor to start. I am also getting gas out of the bottom of the carb. Possibly the overflow for the float??
Any ides guys, I am really close to starting this sled.
It's a 1973 Polaris Colt 295

Re: Adjustments for New Throttle Cable.

Clean the carbs and check the inlet needle and seat. The thottle cable should be loose enough so it doesn't lift the slides but tight enough that you get full lift on the slide exsposing the full bore of the carb.
Hope this helps; contact me if I can help you further.
