The throttle enables the engine to run on a richer mixture and produce more power for high-speed driving. It consists of a throttle arm located on the outside of the carburetor and connected to the gas pedal (or throttle twist grip on a motorcycle), which in turn activates a throttle butterfly valve at the base of the carburetor barrel where it joins the intake manifold. See cranking On The Throttle, depress the throttle pedal, ease up on the throttle, engaging the throttle, full throttle enrichment, full throttle, pumping the throttle pedal, pump the throttle pedal, wide open throttle
