    Where can I find a manual choke kit for a Q-jet? All I'm having luck finding online is for Holley carbs. I'm tired of these ****ty cold stalls.

    ain't any..

    Only hand choke you can put on a Q-jet will have to be home brewed..only the ones with the "black cap" hot air choke can use the kits sold at a parts store...but making a cable operate the choke isn't too difficult,you just have to fab up a bracket and clamp for the cable,and use a "barrel bolt" (a threaded brass sleeve with a hole drilled thru it,and a screw in it ) to secure it to the linkage..making it not interfere with the air cleaner is the hardest part,in my experience...:crazy:

    I picked one up off the shelf at O’Reilly if you have one near you. It was about 10 bucks and came with every thing you’ll need.
