Hello rfbarrett:

From your Description it Sounds like the Plate that is Attached to the Carburetor (that the Throttle cable Attaches to) Thru Shaft (holds and Moves the Throttle Valve) has Loosened and is Simply Turning on the Thru Shaft and Not Moving the Thru Shaft and Throttle Valve at All.
>>You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Engine and Mower at this Site Addy, http://jdpc.deere.com/jdpc/servlet/com.deere.u90490.partscatalog.view.servlets.HomePageServlet_Alt and Enter the Model Numbers 14SB and Click Find. Then Select your Model from the Search Results Area. Then Select the Sectional File. Then Select the Section of the Mower you Wish to View Online. *You can Drag the View Windows for Better Viewing.*
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Remember the belt rule, V of the belt goes in V pulleys.Flat pulleys that are stationary or move get the back of the belt. You can figure it out. Its not rocket science. Remember at some point there has to be a tensioner,usually gets the back of the belt if its a flat pulley. U may have to remove the spring and then reattach the spring after the belt is routed.

I have a john deere 70 1974 with a 7 horse power tecumseh how many times to i turn the either jets on the carb


The bottom screw on the carburetor is the main fuel mixture screw, turn this "in" slowly until is "seats" and then back it out two turns. The idle mixture screw is located on the side (do not confuse with the idle speed screw), turn this in slowly until it seats and then back it out one turn. This will get you in the ballpark but it will have to be fine tuned from their. The proper adjustment is between a "lean" running condition (engine will try to cut off) and a "rich" running condition (engine will load up). The main fuel mixture is adjusted at full throttle position and the idle mixture screw is adjusted at idle speed. Once this is done, you can adjust the idle speed screw in the low throttle position. Hope this helps.
