The spring holds the metering rod down against the pin and allows the metering rod to float up when it contacts the metering jet.

Before setting metering rod, back out the throttle stop screw to allow the throttle plate to seat in the closed position.

This is the special tool resting in the metering orifice. It will be used to set the position of the metering rod pin.
