Thanks TC. I was wondering about the choke, which is actually an enrichment
My carb has had the water choke removed, and a manual setup installed to
actuate the choke by cable. (It looks like a commericial kit) I didn't get
way into it during the rebuild, just cleaned the linkages inside so the cable
would work freely.
Is there a way to temporarily de-actuate (remove) the rest of the choke without
causing any other consequential air leaks?
