New carb-accel cable and choke linkage help

(No, I did not get my carb back from Kruzrtek; my family dug into savings and purchased an almost new carb off Ebay-it arrived a day ago or so despite my thinking it may not as the seller wasnt reposnding to any emails-whew! Thanks to whomever pointed me in to that auction; probably paid too much for it, but I needed my cruiser up and couldnt wait any longer, and besides, how often can you get an almost new shiny carb for relatively cheap? If I ever see my carb back from Rich, I'll sell it I reckon.)

I've been installing it today, and am now stuck though-I can't figure out how to hook up the linkage for both the accell cable and choke cable.

The part number is 21100-61142, and is the same (new) carb listing at both MAF and CCOT:


The carb is like it just came out of the box new, but it is slightly different than my old: there's another diaphram on the (vehicle)front side linked to connection near the front/bottom (that I'm not sure what it's for) with a vac connection that I'm not sure where to hook up at either (on the CCOT pic, the diaphram is on the left above the red part number stiker and to the left of the green electrical connection). My old carb didn't have either but I'm sure it was the original one it came with. Any explanation appreciated here.

I've gotton the linkage hooked up to the firewall, and then to short metal link at the end hooked up to the ball visible on the lower right of the CCOT picture which seems like it's supposed to be there. However, that leaves what seems to be the fulcrum of that same piece with nowhere to hook up to (is closer to the driver's side firewall....closer to you in the CCOT pic). I cannot remember whether my carb had different linkage-it's been too long since I've seen it.

I've looked at Sor's diagrams and it's not enough, my Haynes isn't helpful at all and my Emissions repro manual is not much help either.

What am I missing here? I may just be having a brainfart, but any help this close to me driving my cruiser after so long of being down would be *greatly* appreciated-thanks in advance folks.
