There is a butterfly, the linkage arm is sometimes missing.
Yes they wear quite badly, same as the spindle on the back of the pump, easy to machine out and re-bush. They do seem to still run surprisingly well with a lot of wear in mind. The stop lever is connected to a lever on the pump itself which I believe is connected to a cam that works on the rack. Been a while since I had one apart so cant remember.
The vacuum works the rack, so the more you open the throttle lever the venturi will open and create more vacuum and hence more fuel is thrown in, less vacuum and the rack cuts fuel in.
If you take the side cover off you will be able to see the rack element quite clearly, this engages via teeth on each element, if the rack moves all 4 elements will move too (element is probably not the correct term but the correct term escapes me I'm afraid)

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
