Chokes get converted to manual operation because either they have failed, or

Do you *need* to convert it back to automatic operation? No. A manual
choke can work just fine. It will just lose the gradual opening
characteristics, and rely on your hand to push the knob to open the choke

problem. You will ultimately want to have some sort of choke available to
you for starting. Right now, things may be going fine with starting, but on
a cold morning, they may not. Then a choke helps.

Cheap and handy. The devices that are supposed to remove the ball joint
without damaging the rubber boot always fail on me, bending up nicely. With
some practice, you can learn to use the pickle fork without damaging the
