Thanks guys !
Sure enough the problem was something limiting the movement of the choke
cable outer sheath. The cable housing does need to move freely with
A non-standard SU overflow pipe was impeding the free movement of the
cable. ( the pipe was routed from the rear SU through the engine mount
- with the idea of reducing the chance of dripping fuel on the exhaust.
I also adjusted the cable routing a bit. Choke engagement is back to

Remember that the cable attaches to the fixed bracket and tha housing
attaches to the linkage. It's the housing that moves the linkage.
