  1. Choke won't stay choked

    Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie's choke won't stay on, I pull in the lever for cold starts but then it just creeps open again from the vibes before the engine is warmed up. Does anyone know how to tighten it so it only closes when I want it to? The last vehicle I had with a manual choke was a 1971 Mini! The choke...
