Testing the Automatic Choke adjustment.
The choke is preset at the factory but in some cases it may be necessary
The choke assembly must be cool ( below 68 F 20C) before attempting to
make any adjustments. First fully rotate the throttle lever and release;
Check for smooth operation; the choke plate should be all the way closed.
Make a reference mark on the carburetor and the choke where the two faces
meet. Loosen the three 7mm hex head screws one full turn. While holding
the throttle about one third open, adjust the closing tension on the choke
plates just fully close; then slightly increase the tension on the spring by
continuing to rotate the thermostat 1/8" measured in the outer diameter of the
thermostat. Tighten the three 7mm hex head screws without distorting the
retainer ring; fast idle speed ma
y need to be readjusted.
