which direction to install diaphragm on carburetor?


Hi People,

Im restoring a tecumseh diaphragm carb (for my craftman edger), and forgot which direction I removed the diaphragm. It has a wide circular plate say, as big as a quarter, on one side and the other just the end of the rivet is visible with only a smidgen of metal to hold onto. Does the "quarter" size plate go up or facing the ground?

Tanks!
