Re: Same question, different approach-pictorial

@51-MercCT
As you can see, J B Weld didn't work as there is a little residue left on the knob from a "past" attempt. I will think through the "pin" method as getting a drill into the space where...

Same question, different approach-pictorial

Okay
back to the 39 Mercury choke knob replacement. Offered "today" by Carpenters for a replacement is a choke knob with a "blade" style actuating rod. I have a "replacement" knob but has NO rod...

Re: 39 Mercury knb replacements

I don't know what my dad "tried" to use on the choke knob BUT as it gets used every time you start the car it didn't last a moonlit night!!! Plus the choke cable is a little tight so that doesn't...

Re: 39 Mercury knb replacements
