Q:

where is the choke

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I will be happy to assist you. The choke on this tractor is activated by moving the throttle lever all the way up. This should close the choke plate. Once the engine starts, slowly move the lever down until you feel it slip into a notch. The notch is full speed. If the choke plate is not closing when you move the lever all the way up, it has to be adjusted. I posted an image below that contains the instructions for adjusting the throttle. Just click on the image to enlarge it.  I highlighted the information on the choke.
