    I just got a new(remanufactured) Q-Jet last week that came with out the choke. I have a Edelbrock performer intake that is set up for a divorced style choke. Can an electric choke be put on my new carb? The carb is ment for a 73 350. Also any good places to find an electric choke?

    I am guessing.....No. I don't think the main body of the carb has the mounts/standoffs for the electric type. I have the stove type on my 72. Not sure wich year GM went to electric.
    I know....no help right!!
    Good luck

    most likely a 73 350 has a choke setup that uses a choke thermostat that is mounted on the intake and has linkage ran up to the carb. The housings on Q-jets changed several time thoughout there life span, i also dont think you will be able to bolt an electric to an older style Q-jet.

    You can't use the factory style electric choke actuator on your divorced choke Q-Jet, but you can buy an aftemarket conversion kit to go electric.
