    I got this setup from Bruno last year and shelved it when I decided to rebuild and use the Holley.

    Now that the Q-Jet is operational, I'd like to see if any members have used this choke on their same combo carb/intake combination. Preferably with pictures, if possible.

    I know the are other routes I could go in terms of chokes but I have these parts, so I'd like to use them.

    Thanks in advance!

    Only part true. I searched for "Larry swimsuit photos" and found nothing.

    :D:D:D:D That's right. I could actually fix that, by posting a photo, but instead, I edited my statement.:)

    I use that kind of set up on my 71 with a Performer and a 540 Q-Jet. I dont know the application of the choke and rod, but I had to take a snip out of the coil cover to account for the angle of the rod. I also had that set up on my 73 with a B4B, but when I went to an M4M Q-Jet I had to use an electric choke. upload_2018-11-16_10-12-30.jpeg

    Thanks for the tips!

    Off the top of your head(s), is the screw hole in that pad actually existant or do I need to drill it out?

    Looks like an easy install, right?? :eek:

    Is there a certain position the primary flap needs to be in so this is installed correctly?

    on both my manifolds there is a threaded hole on the choke pad tolocate and mount the coil. On a Buick carb there ore two holes on the carb side choke actuating linkage marked ALT and STD, I use STD.. As far as the rest, use a shop manual to set the whole choke system up correctly, it all applies as if you were using a Buick coil.

    The choke coil pictured in post #1 was normally used for Chevy applications 60's-'70's.
