Automatic Choke

Now that the cold weather is here, I've noticed a choke problem with the coupe. I suspected the screen that filters the heat from the exhaust manifold into the auto choke housing was clogged with carbon. Took it apart today and sure enough, the small screen that cover the entry hole was clogged. I used a wire brush to clean it up and reinstalled it. Now it's a matter of making sure the "winter" (rich) / "summer" (lean) setting is correct for this weather.

The screen fits along the rim of the inner housing on the left side, above the exhaust gas hole.

Here's a shot of the clogged screen.
