Performance carb w/o choke

Hello, i am currently trying to decide what type of carburetor to replace my edelbrock on my '67 GTX. I have been looking at some performance carbs by Bigs, AEM and others, but they do not have a choke option. I always have to use the choke to start it. Would i have any problems starting my GTX if i went with a carb without a choke? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

It will start, but you will likely have to pump the loud pedal a little to get enough fuel in it to fire, then you'll have to nurse the throttle to keep it going until it warms up enough to run on it's own. As you let up on the throttle, if the engine starts to stumble, just jab it slightly so that the accelerator pump shoots just enough fuel to keep it going.

If this is only a fair weather driver consider a carb from here: http://www.pro-system.com/index.html

I had one of his 780 DP's on my old 388 and it was by far the best carb I ever owned. I recently sold it to a guy who had a fresh 383 on the dyno and when it picked it up from 455HP to 480HP, he bought it on the spot. Now I'm building a 406 and Patrick will be building the carb for it

Yea, in the mean time have fun washing down your cylinders from pumping in all that raw fuel. If its a race car who cares, your supposed to freshen them up after so long. If its a street car, sacrifice a little power for something that is designed to work. Keep a choke carb which ever one you chose.

I thought is was against the rules to use "sacrifice" and "power" in the same sentence!

1 small pump on my 1050 dominator "obviously no choke" and it fires right up,every time.very little warm up time.A good carb will start just fine.

You replied to a 2 year old thread that was brought back from the dead by a new member...(who's post I deleted because he posted 4 identical posts tonight).


Happens to the best of us. I learned to look upwards a couple of posts in the thread to see when I'm replying to.


Later, mikey
