Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers
I lost the cover and foam filter. I continued, unwisely, to use the trimmer and caught the now unprotected choke lever on my pocket and broke it off.
Be careful pulling out the old lever, there is a ball on a spring underneath it.

The choke lever actually goes through the air intake of the carburetor. It has a slit that the choke plate goes through. I had to break apart the old lever with a screwdriver in order to remove the choke plate. I pulled the old lever out easily with a pliers and inserted the new lever. One thing that I missed was that there is a small metal ball that sits on a spring that presses against the side of the lever to keep it in the selected position. I hadn't noticed this when I removed the old lever and the ball fell. Thankfully I was able find it on the floor and put it back into place before inserting the new lever.
