 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.

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?

thanks, Gary
