DLE 20 mental block - WOT or idle?

I just changed transmitters and I'd like to confirm whether this is WOT or idle:



Thanks!

judging by how it's hitting the stop, the missing idle adjust screw, and it's orientation to the needle valves, WOT.

It's at idle. The spring below it brings it back to idle.

The return spring is disconnected and the throttle is resting against the plate at the opposite end of where the idle screw used to be. Ergo, WOT. Thanks guys!

I assumed it was not connected to anything when I posted, So Yes, I would agree that it is in WOT position.
