    cause my dad has it on his car, and ive got it on my ride around lawn mower. i pull it when the engines cold, it helps it start.

    You mean the choke, and it injects some extra petrol into the carb thing.

    The clutch disengages the engine to make a gear shift possible.

    I know feck all about engines, really, so some of the above is probably a bit off but I know a clutch doesn't help start an engine in the cold.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    To get technical the choke, chokes or reduces air flow into the engine causing a higher ratio of fuel that is aspirated by the carburetor in the cylinder. When it&#39;s cold out you need a higher ratio of fuel mixed with the freezing air until the engine warms up.
