    Can everyone with a camera and a q-jet carb snap some pictures of the choke side of the carb? I want to know if mine is hooked up correctly from the rebuild last winter. As its not running or starting properly.

    Thanks, I appreciate and pictures I can get :)

    Just take the air cleaner off of it in the morning, and see how it reacts as you go from startup to warm engine...

    Cold, kick throttle twice. Choke plate should snap shut. Start engine, the choke plate should crack open slightly, then gradually open until the blades are vertical. This could take anywhere from approx. 5-10 minutes.

    If it doesn't operate like that, no it's not right. They aren't very complex, but they are fairly difficult to get setup right.

    The first part you test without it started, so as long as the throttle is hooked up, you can test that.

    You'll have a more difficult time starting anyways if that portion isn't right.

    The difficulty in getting the choke, vacuum break, etc. all set up right is that you really only get one chance a day to try out your changes. But start by making sure the choke is at least closing after a couple of throttle taps on a cold morning. You may need some cleaner to make sure nothing is sticking.

    Here is a pic, its off a '86 454 from california. Its not a very good angle but maybe you might make use of it. Dont pay attention to the vaccum lines though the PO had them all screwy. If you really need it I can take another pic at a better angle.
