Restrict air getting in, richen up the fuel mix so the motors start easier.

Handraulic version of a choke control
Remember them?
All cars had them when we were young
and carburettors delivered cheap fuel
Now it is injected and darn expensive

Yes I remember them on cars very well. Some the choke had to be all out on start up,
 then shoved back in again to a position which differed in every car.
get it wrong and the things either cut out or flooded.
Happy days.  not

If you enjoyed "The Sea Shall Not Have Them" watch out for another  ASR picture called  "For Those In Peril" I think it's the better movie
