Sounds like someone removed the choke spring under the plastic cover. Played with the spring & put it in the wrong way. Easy to do.

Full choke alignment is possibly in order. Not hard to do right.

That's the same conclusion I came up with. The spring doesn't seem to be removable though. I found one on Mike's carburetors website that shows a reversed spring.

I ordered this one.

Thanks Cyclops2 for your response.

If that requires flipping the spring I don't think it can be done on this choke cover. The spring appears to be permanently attached. Am I reading you right?

I use a hair dryer to speed up adjustment if a instruction sheet of how to adjust, is missing. Some have several steps of warming up. Others have a vacuum pull off to assist.

I'm waiting on the new choke cover with the reversed spring I ordered. I have this thing figured out. The hair dryer is a good idea.  Thanks for your input.
