    Easy as pie. Most auto parts stores sell kits for less than 10 bucks. Takes about 30 mins to install. I had on on my 72,it was the best thing i did to it.

    is it as simple as removing the old choke off the carb and installing this setup? i cant imagine it being that difficult, are the kits carb specific??

    electric choke are great and easy to convert to if already dont have it, also the hot air vacuum chokes were good too as long as you left them alone

    i kinda like the idea of a manual choke because it seems simpler with less parts to break/malfunction..my intake has a blockoff plate bolted to the choke feed area and the intake is going to the dumpster once i can afford a performer air gap...

    yeah pretty much, you just take the cover off and remove the guts. a little lever is supplied in the kit that will move the choke, and a rod sticks out through a supplied cover which the cable goes on too. The screws holding the choke cover on were my only trouble, but the came right out with vice grips. The kits are pretty much generic. Mine had two different covers and levers for different carbs.
