Looks just the way mine was when I found it. For those of you that haven't run one...the only engine control it has is a choke lever. No throttle. When you start it it's WFO and your instinct might lead you to believe it's got an air leak and a piston meltdown is imminent. Nope. That's just how it works. 1 speed. WFO, with a governor ball-jet-thingy that keeps it from over-revving. Until it warms up, and when I'm not pumping with it, I usually leave the choke out as far as I can without stalling it just to slow the RPMs and provide more cooling via more fuel.
