    So the screw that holds the choke thermostat broke off. I assume I can just drill this out? Or any other suggestions as to how to re-attach?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you can safely heat it put some candle wax on it and try a reverse/ left hand drill bit

    If you mean it randomly broke off you can use a smaller drill to make a hole down the center of it and use an easyout extractor. If you mean it was seized in there and broke when you were working on it, then heat and bee's wax is a good way to go. If you have the gear and experience you could weld a nut on the remains and turn it out once it cools.
