    does anyone have or know what diameter and threads the screw is that holds the auto choke coil assembly(divorced style rod linkage choke) down to the intake manifold on a 71 or so intake ?
    i need one badly right now and i have been trying some different screws laying around and nothing is working. if anyone has one then please lemme know.,


    *not meaning black round cover style auto choke, im meaning the intake manifold mounted kind of auto choke*



    thanks

    mine was a real course thread sheet metal type of screw. basically self tapping, not anything that required tapped threads..

    but the threads in the intake are tapped, but i have no idea to what size and diameter, i dotn know what GM tapped threads to in these.

    i was told elsewhere that they are #10 and 32tps...

    I got the head of one laying on the floor in my garage would that help? the rest is stuck in the intake /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    I fixed it right though. 2cent screw broke so time for an upgrade to a newer carb from about 76-78 and converted to electrick choke. It works SO MUCH better than the divorced set up /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
