Default Maytag 72 Carburetor

Hello folks,
I am new to this board and am just getting into the antique part of the hobby. I have been "messing around" with small engines for many years, but not older ones.
I am looking at a model 92 and a 72 (72D or twin). My question is: where is the carburetor located on the 72? I want to make sure these engines are complete before I buy...
I have exhaused the search feature here and looked on the web.

Thank you for your help in advance. There is so much good information here.

There is no carb as such on the 72. The functions are spread about. The mixture is controlled by the big knob. The mixing is done at the bottom of the crankcase. The throttle valve is inside the crankshaft. It's hard to tell if all the bits are there without either running it or taking it apart.

Thanks, Keith. Right now, all I have to go by is pictures. I would guess that all the internal stuff is there, but I suppose going to look at it is the best bet. Thank you for the help!
