Question Choke, Run Position

I have Model# 536.8861223 not sure of the choke and run position on it. I do know all the way to the right on the switch is the kill position. Does anyone know if there were decals to show position?

If I remember correctly:

all the way to the right is full choke.....I set it here when I first start it up, then click it to the left as the engine warms up. There is a noticable difference in the RPMs as I do this. The further left (3-4 clicks)I go the higher the RPMs are.

The kill is when I move my throttle lever all the way down until the lever stops, after a few seconds the engine slows down and shuts off.

Hope this helps.
