Post Choke set up

I am installing a used #8004 Weiand Dual Plane intake on my 350 Chevy. I am using an early Rochester Q-Jet carb that has a coil that opens and closes the choke. How do I set this up on the weiand intake? Do I simply make a bracket that bolts to the exhaust bypass or will I have to go to a manual. I realy hate to since my 57 had an automatic choke to begin with.

Talking

mike,

can't help you with your bracket question, but i say go with the manual choke. I find that the auto chokes don't work very well, at least that's been my experience. With a manual choke you know exactly whether it is on or off.

This is a easy one just go to a electric choke. You can buy a new one or just find a older GM car they all had them. I have put them on my cars for 15 years and they work fine and never stick. ROY

Cool

Do I buy one specific to my carb or are they a general part? Is it a gm part or is it available at my independent parts store. and how do I wire it in. I have had cars with electric chokes and I liked all of them except for the Veriable Venturi on my Ford LTD (Loved Towings Daily) at least until I replaced the carb

Mike sorry it took so long to answer still a little under the weather.You can get a aftermarket kit. Or just get a GM choke. All you need is 12v from the switch when the choke opens up it shuts the 12v off inside the choke.The only differance in the chocks is some stay on longer then others. You can adj it and make up for that. I always use a relay on the choke because I like the protection. ROY
