A electric choke won`t help matters much. The choke is telling you that you have a problem elsewhere. If it runs good with the choke partially closed it means it`s allowing less airflow and more fuel in, indicating the mixture is too lean with the choke in the full open position. Check it for vacuum leaks, check the carb and make sure it`s not plugged up and check the spark timing, also check fuel delivery. It`s also likely been mentioned the Torker II is the wrong intake for a street bound 283. A dual plane intake like the performer would be far better. You may want to check the intake bolts for tightness as well. What ignition system are you using?
