Carb.... so simple, but such a pain Choke spring/stop

Postby Buzzard Wing » Sun Feb 27, 2005 5:57 pm

I can't believe I need to ask this question!

The 'starting shutter' (choke) stop or spring came with the carb kit, so I pulled the old one out and just CAN'T get the new one to go in the slot.

Small piece of spring steel that stops the choke lever, fits in just below the choke butterfly lever.

I was doing so well too.... got the float perfect with my B&S dial caliper and everything.

Thanks

I'm sure you're talking about the little toaster-like slot by the choke. Make sure there isn't some cruddy chunk of what-not stuck in there keeping it from going in. Unless it's cut too wide to fit in the slot, it should pop right in.

Not cut too wide... no crud either.
Now I have it in the slot, but can't seem to get the end that goes into the slot to go... guess it needs to be in further, but I am trying to be gentle.

I have a lot of patience, but this is beginning to bug me!

Thanks Carl

Compare the old with the new. The new one may have the tab that fits in the slot just a bit longer than the old one. Use a thin blade to force the tab back into the slot.

Managed to break it.... split it right at the curve!

Oh well, the old one fits find but is not as shiny...... no one but the very observant and me will know.

Thanks Carl!

Can't see it in the box!
Still a couple of weeks away from installation.
Wish it would warm up....
