Can I get a new choke assembly? I haven't look at it much since it's cold outside.  I'm thinking about just using a piece of metal to choke it and get it started so I can pull it into a heated garage.

When you say you broke a screw, do you mean you broke off one of the 2 screws that hold the butterfly plate onto the shaft? Those are available replacement parts. I have had some success backing them out from the other side with a pair of small vice grips. Can you post a pictures so we know what you are talking about?

That will work just fine. Better than working in the cold.

Depending on what you have I might have the parts you need sitting here. 

 

Know where that screw went before you start it.  I had a customer bring an old Wisconsin to me that had a broken throttle screw, just got corroded and snapped.  The problem though was that he started it up, and as the engine took off like an airplane due to no throttle, the screw was sucked into the cylinder and screwed the bore up terribly.

This is on the lever outside the carb.  Hard to describe.  It has the set screw for the choke cable.
