What holds the choke knob out? mine wont stay out. I havent needed to choke it ever, but i was messing with it the other day, and it definately does change the way it runs when you pull the knob out, but it doesnt stay out by itself, and i'm pretty sure it should. not a huge problem i guess, but i was just curious.

There's a spring clip inside the unit that snaps into a groove to hold it out. The spring is either weak or broken, or the groove in the shaft is worn. You need a new choke.
