It's not really a choke since all the lever does is open up the throttle a little. It doesn't richen the mixture or anything like that. It's just a throttle.

Just be sure you have a good gasket on the cap and wipe off the cap before opening. The fuel filter will do the rest to stop the damage to your system.

It peeled right off. I used WD40 and a scratch pad and then flushed well with diesel. There have not been any leaks or any adverse things as a result of not having the liner.
