Choke quit working
« on: March 15, 2013, 08:15:21 PM »
Hey gang, I need some advice. My electric choke stopped working. I did an ohms test and there is no power to the electric choke. Plus the diaphragm pulled the choke wide open upon start up.  The diaphragm has plenty of vacuum pressure and it is hooked up to the correct port on the BBD/Carter. I tried to adjust and bend the diaphragm linkage to get it to function, but the  :censored: choke will not open up and it starts to flood out. I'm thinking of putting on a pull choke and work it manually. It needs a new electric choke. Anyone else have any choke/carb/BBD issues? How did you fix it?

I *JUST* posted a topic on this.   Check the oil pressure switch on the passenger side of teh engine rear of the oil filter.  This is powered directly and is not switched, you should have power at the switch.  When the engine starts the switch closes, powering the choke.  It's a cheap part to replace if it's bad.
