My car is a tribute, and the choke has always been disconnected (I live in warm weather), so absolute originality isnt that important, especially for something you cant really see.
Would it be practical to remove the entire choke assembly on the passenger side, and the flap, etc? It all just seems to get in the way.
Ok, an hour later and put it all back together, this time with my old blue gasket, which I know worked, and this is where I sit, still not wanting to run or idle on its own, and constantly blowing lots of smoke. Sounds like its badly choking on itself. No difference. Funny thing is, before I started running out of gas yesterday, it did idle, not well, but it was a lot better than this.
Guess I'll try again next weekend.
