Wanting to adjust your choke settings : ea81

Subject: 1983 4WD GL Wagon
Choke: Electric and vacuum actuated...
It seems that Subaru didn't want us messing with the choke settings. My dad's was set one notch to the choke side from center. There are 2 rivets on the top side of the housing, and 1 bolt on the bottom. I loosened the bottom bolt, and it freed up the housing, but it would not turn.
I then drilled out the 2 rivets, and pulled back the cover for a ook. There is a small groove cut into the housing cover that fits over a small brass pin on the other part of the housing. I then used a needle nose pliers to pull the pin out (easily) and re-assembled the choke housing with 2 new bolts/nuts to replace the rivets.
just loosen the 3 bolts and you can fully adjust the choke and re-tighten.

I wonder if the pin in mine just bent or broke when I turned it with the pipe wrench?
Oh well, it starts perfectly and runs like a scalded dog now !
