Vintage Educational Video: Carburetor Choke Operation

LARIAT 85
I found this vintage educational video on carburetor choke operation and the proper cold-starting procedure.  I thought it was an interesting video, and it illustrates how a properly set up and tuned carburetor should start:

I agree, that's a great video.  And I like it so much I've created a page for it here: Documentation/Fuel Systems/Correct Cold Starting Procedures.

However, that worries me a bit as it could go away out there in You Tube land.  In fact, if I could figure out how to save it so it couldn't go away I'd do that.  Anyone know?
