the carburetor with a fast idle cam (fig. 4-37) that is operated by linkage from the choke.
When the choke closes, the fast idle cam swings around in front of the fast idle screw. As a result, the fast idle cam and fast idle screw prevent the throttle plate from closing. Engine idle speed is increased to smooth cold engine operation and prevents stalling. As soon as the engine warms, the choke opens and the fast idle cam is deactivated. When the throttle is opened, the choke linkage swings away from the fast idle screw and the engine returns to curb idle (normal, hot idle speed).
If for some reason the engine should flood when it is cold, a device is needed to open the choke, so air may be admitted to correct the condition. This is accomplished
