Most times i dont need to use the choke on my tractors- or could be the carb is set a little rich. My 86 GTII always needs choke - its a cold blooded engine.

That's usually a dirty carb not letting enough fuel in to go with all that air at no-choke.

I had a 10HP Tecumseh that would start without choke, it ran rich. Once I got the carb adjusted where it needed to be, I had to use choke.
