Re: Electric Choke
No problem, I posted bogus info, and it needed to be corrected.
Another thing is, with some of these chokes that have a threaded fitting on the choke body to add a hot air tube, there is usually a screen and cover nut fitted. DO NOT BLOCK THIS OPENING WITH A STEEL BALL. It needs to pull clean, free air to not overheat the choke stove coil, and, to let the pull off work correctly. With the engine running, there should be some level of vacuum at this hot air tube fitting, if blocked off, open it, and, make sure the choke body has the gasket between it and the vacuum hole on the carb body, open, free flowing.
Also, read what Rich L-79 posted, right on target.
