Hitachi Electric Choke Question???

There may also be an issue with the linkage. With it stone cold, open the throttle completely while watching the choke, it should close as soon as it's opened, I think. I can't remember if your year soob requires the throttle opened to close the choke like the olde ones do.

I did rotate the choke some before I put on the air filter housing by rotating it backwards towards the spare tire. That however was not when the engine was cold.

Unfortunately, the EA82 Hitachi choke's are junk - the end of the spring wears through and falls off. It's possible the rebuilders missed it.

The choke plate should be closed when cold, and slowly opens as the spring heats.
