Need some guidance please.

Have installed a new choke cable into the arm that clamps the spiral in place. I have a new long pin with a threaded end on one end and a hole for a cotter pin on the other. The nut that came with the pin doesn't come close to pinching the choke cable wire. Am I missing a washer or just have things assembled incorrectly?.

Appreciate the help

I don't know if this is showing what you need or not...

There should be a hole through the threaded end, next to the flange, so the nut can pinch the inner cable when it is inserted through the hole. No washer needed.

Problem solved - the pin I bought was made incorrectly. Finally found a picture of the correct part on the SU spares website. On my pin, the hole for the wire was not on the thread side of the flange, but was on the main body of the pin. Now everything makes sense. I will drill a new hole and complain to the supplier. Thanks for the help.
