I am going to look at the thermostat's bimetal coil and see if there are any issues.
Does anyone know if you can adjust the amount of choke pull off from the set screw that I originally started this post about?
Just get some aluminum heads and a nice block. New front springs shouldn't be too much for the '69.

I had an Edelbrock Scorpion intake a few months ago. It was the predecessor to the Torker. I sold it on Ebay for $50.
Here is a Victor Jr.
Check this out. Here is Edelbrock's worst manifold ever made. It made less power than a stock intake.
Why don't you build a big block this time?

Wussies, and people that drive their hot rods to work everyday at 6:00 AM.
WICKEDBLAB! What up fool? What are you doing trolling around here again?
See what happens when you tell one of your local hood rats about this site. They come on talk trash, and then split before you get a chance to tell them what time is it.

Thank you Pony. I will try the 1 turn out setting.
Does anyone else know what the screw is for?

|Pony||Took a blurry pic of my choke assembly it's an internally referenced buy I think I have the screw your talking about. First pic in my gallery. I looked at it and it does seem to be a vacuum adjustment of some sort. It is set one full turn in from the head being flush with the housing. My choke works good so I hope this will help you..|

Here is a link that shows the choke.
You can't see the set screw in the picture. Looking at the choke, the screw is located at the bottom left side of it.

Holley choke set screw
I have one of the externally referenced electric chokes. There is a small set screw at the front of the choke assembly that goes into the vacuum pull off chamber where the piston is. The set screw looks just like one of the ones for the idle mixture adjustment on the metering blocks, only it sits flush into the choke. It comes to a point and looks like it possibly controls the amount of vacuum pull off.
This set screw is interfering with the choke pull off at warm up. It won't allow my choke plate to open smoothly. Does anyone know exactly what the set screw is for, or what the correct baseline adjustment is?
