Choke question

When I pull out the choke , it wont stay closed - it justs wants to open again . Cable maybe needs lubed? No obstructions blocking anything. Regards, Johmyy

On the choke control, the base (not the knob that you pull out, but the part the knob's shaft goes into) can be rotated. This will apply friction to it, and keep it from pulling itself back in.

Thanks!
I guessed it was some sort of a friction control, but was lost as to were. Regards, Johnyy
