With the butterfly open, the choke lever should be pointed down, then when you pull on the lever, the butterfly closes.

thank you for the quick reply. I couldn't remember if it pointed toward the front some or strait down.

I always put them angled a bit towards the front. There is a fair margin of error - probably from straight down to at least 45 degrees forward.

I place mine so the lever is positioned at six o'clock, fully open, so the weight of the rod helps the spring detent keep it there when it gets bumpy.
