Choke Cable insert?

Postby LittleGoldy » Sun Aug 09, 2015 11:51 pm



I have heard mention by a highly experienced Honda Tech that something to do with the cable as it enters whatever on the engine, that "something" must be done to prevent failure and Leaks?

Anyone o the Guru's around here got any idea what I'm missing in the information column?

"Highly experienced Honda tech. Hmmm! The only thing I can think of since it is just a mechanical cable is to route it correctly so that it doesn't bind. As for leaking??? Nothing there to leak.
