The pull cable is for the throttle action.

The push cable is there to prevent a wide-open-throttle situation.

A four-stroke creates a strong vacuum in the venturi compared to a two-stroke, so the possibility of the slide not being able to drop under spring and gravity pressure, is a real concern.
