    My electric choke is not engaging at all. I've read the manual and will be going through the adjustment routing shortly. Dumb question though, after adjustment should the choke plate and fast idle cam be engaged when cold and no 12V, or does 12v have to be applied to engage? From the description it sounds like 12V controls heating of the element and dis-engagement so the choke should be fully engaged when cold.

    I believe you are correct. The electricity is there to help heat the element.

    to engage the choke you have to slowly depress and release the throttle once
    this should be your normal cold start routine
    depress once to prime with fuel and set choke
    turn key to fire it up
    should fire up to fast idle and remain until you tap the throttle to release the fast idle cam

    multiple fast stabs on the throttle release the fast idle cam
