If you have properly working choke and throttle cables, do you need the choke rod on a Carter YF 2100S? What function does it perform?

Thanks!!

I would say, yes. It serves to crack open the throttle blade as you pull the choke closed. This allows the engine to keep running and not be completely "Choked" out. Also, why would the engineers put it there if it wasn't necessary? So, instead of pulling the choke and then the throttle, you just have to pull one of those.

A vehicle with a manual choke also needs acetylene headlights, a hand crank, and clincher rims on wood spoke wheels.

Jerry - it could be argued that someone needing an automatic choke on their vehicle might also need a chauffeur wink

As far as the hand crank is concerned; 45 years ago I had one. Wish I had a digital camera then, as the looks I got in the parking lot were worth the effort to crank the engine (it would start on the first half revolution as long as the manual choke was set wink ) It also had an electric start, but the hand-crank was a lot more fun!

Don't remember acetylene headlights; I did use carbide lanterns when I was a youngster.

KLhansen - you wouldn't have to worry about the holes in the floorboards if you lived in Missouri. MoDot would see to these with all of the salt which they dump on the roads for the folks needing the automatic choke, the automatic transmission, and above all, a chauffeur in the winter frown

OP - absolutely required, no; but I would leave it, unless there is a specific reason not to use it.

Good carburetion is fuelish hot air

Wally /Montana It amazes me how the whole stovebolt tribe battles those liquid fuel carburetors,fuel pumps,dirty tanks,filters and lines. Oh and the heat riser wore out system always stuck and leaking. A few brand new fork lift parts will bypass all of that so you don't wash your cylinders down every morning with gasoline.My 51 6400 starts with just a bump,is then immediately ready to go smooth out the driveway.Also the fuel is 1/2 the price,no sludge,oil stays bright ! If you tear it down don't have to use some sludge cutting coal oil flush is already clean !!

ApacheFiend I never saw a choke that worked properly,they all wash your cylinders down,same way with points distributors just busy wearing down. Thankfully the Delco engineers developed HEI and Delcotron modern systems !!

You mean that choke rod does something that I used to do myself with the throttle on my Monojet? Some day the driver will have no function at all. Wait......
