    '65 Skylark, 300 with an AFB 4055S/hot air choke and manual trans.

    I'm not happy with the cold starts for one thing. I can swap an Edel 1406 / elec choke on pretty quickly to confirm a carb issue. Any gotchas that I need to watch for?

    You will probably have to do some work on the linkage for the detent cable. Or does it go to the gas pedal that year, too?

    Solid linkage back to the gas pedal. I do still have the dashpot in the linkage - left over from the car's past life as an automatic.
