    I have a choke sticking on this engine. When you move the lever handle it does not open all the way. If you work the lever in and out you can finally get to open all the way. Same is true on closing. I can not tell where it is sticking. This is on a Scag ztr. Any suggestions where to check.

    disconnect the choke linkage from the cable and by hand see if the (choke) butterfly is moving freely,in the carb...sound like the linkage might have to be reset
