Variable Motor Control

Hi, Iv’e got a 8x12 C&P with a motor and a variable speed throttle. I thought something was wrong with the motor because the speed wasn’t changing when I raised or lowered the throttle but figured out the rod that moves the adjustor on the motor had become disconnected from the throttle control. The speed control box is is pretty self contained and I don’t want to mess with it too much because the box also houses the power switch to the motor, and I can adjust the rod by hand to change speed.
Is opening it up & poking around worth it or should I leave well enough alone?
