    I recently bought an old Wards five horse motor that runs great. My only problem with it is the fact that you have to pull out the choke to kill it. There isn't a off switch of any kind on it. Is it possible to jerry rig one to it?

    Easy, just short out the spark plug. How you do that, is up to you, but it is common on old lawn mowers.
