Divorced chokes are usually lonely, have very little money left and live in crappy apartments


But seriously, the spring that opens the choke is in or on the manifold instead of the carburetor. There will be a rod connecting the spring to the carb to operate the choke mechanism.

How does a divorced choke work?

first have a nasty divorce,,,, #1 you grab her by the throat and squeeze. #2 she hold his boys ever so gently then crushes them with a iron vice like grip....

She takes everything in the house, the house, and then all your stuff... and finally, you pay her to keep out of jail.. if you dont, you will choke your self while in jail for marring the .... you know...
