1972 Moke choke question
« on: December 15, 2020, 08:29:40 AM »
Hello, I have a 1972 Leyland Moke. I am in the United States. I have been driving my moke for 6 months since I bought it. I noticed the choke knob turns on the dash, is it supposed to? Is this for adjustment or is the nut holding it on just loose?
Thanks, Scott

Hi,

the knob can turn on the cable but should come to a stop while the cable should not be turning as the correct fitting in the dash is normally triangular that should match the profile of the solid part of the cable.

Can you supply some pictures?

with some choke set ups you can pull out the knob and rotate it to hold the choke in that location, quite handy for warming up in cold climates.
