Unhappy

cant get pics to post. If the electric choke does not work, would that keep the linkage from opening the choke plate? Even if i try to open the choke plate it hits a post that sticks out from behind the electric choke. Im not sure if the linkage is set up correctly. I will continue to try to upload pics.

Hard to tell from those pics, but if working properly, you can always manually open the choke. I will be able to take a better look shortly.

thats my problem. no matter what i do i cant open the choke plate. I hit a hard stop. That is what makes me believe the electric choke or linkage is incorrect.

I would take the choke cap off and see if that is the problem. There is a coil spring under very little pressure inside and there is a notch in the choke housing connected to the linkage that accepts the end of the coil spring.

Will look at that choke spring this morning. has to be something wrong to stop the choke plate so hard.

turned on the ignition, 12 volts to the choke housing. Choke plate did not open. removed the choke housing and the bi-metal spring was warm to the touch. Gave full throttle and the choke plate did not open. Something is not right with the setup. Will go down and try to take better pics the linkage setup.

Did you turn the choke cap to try to open the choke?

Spring should be warm as the 12 volts warms the bi-metalic spring which causes expansion at different rates.

Thumbs up

Just figured it out. I noticed a small cotter pin hole at the bottom of the choke linkage. it is missing. the L at the bottom had jumped from under the counterweight to the top of the plastic. moved it below and everything works as it should. Will make a temporary until i can get the proper cotter pin. Thanks for all your help. It goes to show ya. stick with it, everything is fixable.
