Hi Carl, my name is Jason.

Does the choke work on the carburetor? If you pull the lever does it fully close?

What kind of compression does the engine have? What is the timing set to?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It's a electric choke, no manual, engine has great compression. Runs GREAT after starting.
