I think I just did that. In my defense, it wasn't my tractor.That reminds me of an old Monty Wards (Gilson) lawn tractor I had years ago. It was always a bear to start. One day my new wife (27 years ago) asks if she can pull it out of the shed to get to some yard tools and I said "If you can start it, you can move it." She hops on, pushes the throttle full on and it fires right up. She backs the throttle off a bit and pulls the little tractor out of the shed with me standing there slack jawed.
I never admitted that I didn't know how to choke the darn thing.
