This series of photos should help eliminate any confusion when connecting the cables to the slides on Dellorto VHB 29 carburetors.
The cable does not go through the spring at all. Instead, simply get the cable situated within the slide, then move the spring over to hold the cable in place. Pay careful attention to the direction the slide is facing in relationship to the body of the carb (large flat side faces the intake manifold) and also that the cable holder on the top cap is nearest the intake manifold.
