Choke Cable

Post by Skip Frey » Mon Mar 09, 2009 4:58 pm

1957 17' Chris Craft runabout. Choke cable sticks in full out position, won't go back in. Any suggestions?

Hi Skip,
first thing, disconnect the cable from the carburetor and see how it works. Works OK? problem is most likely the choke butterfly in the carb is binding.

Cable still won't go back in? you could have a kink in the cable or even just a bend that's too tight or simply need to remove the inner cable from the outer casing for cleaning/lubrication.

It's good to have wood!
