Gary, something is definitely off there, as the Spitfire choke SHOULD work as
any other: pull out for a cold start, and push fully home for normal running.
As I really don't know much about how the choke works on a Stromberg, I'm
copying some e-mail Triumph lists in hopes that someone else can advise.
NOTE: Please make sure to copy Gary on your replies.

*Man: Well, no ... It's not so much of a jet, it's more your, er, Triumph
Herald engine with wings.

Subject: Spitfire Question on Stromberg
I just got a Spitfire and wanted to know if the choke on the Stromberg
works in reverse of how I know most carbs work? When I pull the choke
out it runs great when warm but if I push it in rpm's go down and it
shut the engine off. Any thoughts?
