Well, not quite. I forgot that we had the 6 on the dink.
But, now I'm in the Bahamas
and have had a couple of opportunities to put it to the test.
Full hard bulb, choke out, throttle closed - typically 3-4 pulls rather than the previous nearly-always-6.
It still takes a bit of time to warm up enough to stay running, and some fiddling to make it not stall when I first put it into gear
But, it does start more quickly with the throttle closed.
Since I have my lift
straps on it, I'll not pop the lid, but the next few cold starts, I'll move the throttle a bit from closed. When I take it off the boat, perhaps I'll recall
to look inside at the roller.
