First let's see if the choke is operating correctly.
Remove the air filter cover.
Set the switch to MANUAL.
The choke should close and remain closed for the entire cranking cycle (do not let the engine crank for more than about 15 seconds at a time, stopping for 2 or 3 minutes to let the starter cool).
Does the choke close during cranking, and then reopen when cranking ceases?
it's raining right now----so that will have to wait----the air filter is inside a plastic black box (which has been replaced serveral times do to backfiring and breaking of the box) I guess I could tell by checking the choke lever position on the outside of the box rather than trying to see it which is almost impossible
people that installed my solar system etc----mechanic @ their shop adjusted
