last night while tinkering around as the engine was warming up. I looked at this lever. (it's the lever just above the water pump pulley.) I've always assumed it's "ok" but when looking closer I see it's sort of stuck or not free enough to move with the spring that keeps it in place. Then the spring has been stretched also.


Pushing the lever down seemed to make the engine run (almost in-perceptively) smoother. Unless I was imagining things.

How do/would I know where it should be set?

I suppose there was a choke type cable on tractor type applications going by the lever design.
