    I forgot to let you know I got my conversion kit thanks Ken! Maybe I should toss a Q jet on my turbo car and run it without boost... Just need some studded tires as its winter here.

    Glad to hear it made it.

    try the install on a spare carb/bracket and let me know what you think. Any feedback is appreciated. I am still improving the design and instructions.

    Went out and started the car @ 35* yesterday morning. after sitting 2 weeks it started and idled only taking 1/2 the cranking time and no contentious pumping of the peddle. What a difference.

    Maybe I will do some testing on starting my 75 Regal with your choke when it hits -30 F LOL...

    Ken, I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the choke kit we purchased for our 1973 century. After a few adjustments on the high idle cam, the choke works great!!!!!!! engine starts fast, idles smoother, runs better etc. Thank you, thank you, thank you. the instructions are clear and precise for installation and settings. If I could make a small suggestion. the mounting screws used to mount the plate to the choke plate could use (IMO) about 1 mm more of length and still not interfere with operation of choke cam arm. Otherwise the kit should be a success regardless. Just wanted to pass along a BIG THANK YOU.

    regards,

    Mark Shrout

    Mark, thanks very much for the feedback. I am still trying to improve the form fit and function of the kit.

    I am glad to hear it has had a positive effect on your vehicle!

    Great looking car!

    I just received the laser cut production pieces, and they look great!

    Off to plating, then I'll pack up some more kits.

    I have one handmade kit left, at the introductory $65 shipped price.
