    Re: fuel primer frustration

    I read a post years ago about choke plate screw loss. Got stuck in my head though I had no personal experience. Thanks for the link JC-SuperJet. Will think twice about future choke removal.

    It's the scare of the lost screw that caused choke removal. Hey JC-Super Jet where did you get the metal primer? I'm only finding machine specific plastic ones. Thanks.
