01 Choke Cable

My choke cable isn't moving as freely and I think isn't engaging and disengaging the choke properly. I saw where I can get a new ome on Ebay for around $20 or is there a way to make the old one work like new again?

Garage
A choke cable will cost around $8 at any online dealer and under $10 from a dealer. Check the valve in the carb to make sure it isn't sticking.

You might be able to take the end off of the carb and clean up the hole the brass plunger goes into. Some times they get dirt or corrosion in them and it makes moving the choke difficult.

in the winter mine freezes so she wont start on real cold nights. so i whip out the heat gun or hair dryer and heat the **** out of the plastic where you slide it across, and i heat up the whole carb. then the choke works perfect and she starts great since the carb is warmed up

How hard is it to get to where the choke cable goes into the carb. I bought some carb and choke cleaner to try.

The choke plunger has an o-ring on it, so be careful about spraying carb cleaner on it, it could dissolve the rubber o-ring.

I sprayed aerokroil on the plunger, I got the choke cleaner for where it goes into the carb.

No, spraying the aerokroil on the top under the plunger didn't work. Haven't tried taking it loose at the carb yet.

can you replace that o ring with any boss O ring or is it something special?? i`m cleaning out my carb and fuel tank right now and was looking at the o-ring and it seems dishaped(more squared then round.)

thanks in advance for any help..
