This one should have the choke close when the throttle is in the fast position, I took a pic from the 2008 l-Head service manual which shows how to set them

I see that under there, but it's not actuating the choke at full throttle. Hardly even touches it. There is a small screw under there that looks to be an adjustment for something, not sure what though.

 

I seem to remember the two holes that mount the plate to the carb body were slotted on some models to allow a bit of adjustment - could be someone had it apart at one time and didn't get the plate back in the correct position.  It could also be that someone has bent the arm at some point as well  - just a couple of thoughts.

Thought the tires from "what I did today" thread you started. After reviewing that  I realized the firestones would be too big for LK.

Yeah, just a bit large! :smilewink:

 

I got the cracks in the steering wheel filled. I'll finish what sanding is needed today and get it ready for paint.

It does have the adjustment slots, but they do nothing for the choke! That little lever coming in at full throttle wants to open the choke, not close it!

 

Got some time with the steering wheel. Not 'restoration quality', but it'll be there for someone to fix.

Both of my lawn keepers have a manually operated choke lever that is not actuated by the throttle mechanism.  I don't recall ever seeing a LK with the choke lever actuated by the throttle.  There was really no need for the throttle-actuated choke, since the operator is always behind the tractor, when starting with the recoil starter.

 

There was an electric start kit that was dealer installed, but I don't think it had any parts to convert the throttle mechanism to actuate the choke, and no additional cable to choke the machine from the seat.

 

I agree that most of these V60's and similar engines have a throttle-actuated choke. 

 

I'll add some pictures. Both of my machines are currently in storage.

 

First pic shows choke in the "on" position, second in the "off" position.

 

My experience is that you need to have the choke fully closed to start these engines.

I put the steering wheel back on this morning.

Also put the shroud/fuel tank on. Hope it doesn't shake to much. Not much to brace it from.

I may see about making something to operate the choke back there. It'll be simple, just need to look at it a bit to figure it out.

Well, this is as simple as I can figure out for a choke 'rod'.

We'll see how it works.

Looking good.  You could run a piece of flat iron from the one recoil mounting screw up to the bolt at the front of the fuel tank to act as a brace - just a suggestion.
