Sorry for the typo on the engine size. Yes, my motor is the 273cu. V8 LA engine. I was in a bit of a hurry to get my question in.There's no such engine. Are you referring to the 273 cubic inch V-8?
In my experience, the chokes worked fine IF the exhaust passage across the intake manifold, that was supposed to heat the choke coil, was not clogged.
Gosh. I better not do that again. Wow! that made a HUGE difference that makes in the answer to my question! Thanks! I guess the spelling, syntax, and punctuation police are on the job today! Hooray!
As for the operation of the choke, without the linkages, I really don't know if it works or not. My comment was only to the fact that Dodge auto chokes on the /6 225 was crap and I know this fact personally as I experienced it - even when I bought a brand new one and hooked it up, it never really functioned properly on really cold days.
Do you know of a source for the linkages? I have contacted Holley and have not had a response from them as of yet. No junkyard around here has any, no parts store lists it that I have found. If I cannot get the linkages for the OEM auto choke, then what electric choke replacement kit will work with the 2BBL Holley carb I have?
