Carbs - Chokes
#1
Greetings all.

Edelbrock intake has the bolt holes for the mechanical choke and the new carb is electronic choke.

I hate see those two holes just sitting there. Ideas on how to deal with these.

The posts from the old manifold aren't going to work on the new cab, minus the ERG plate. I should be able to just use bolts or should I order some posts?

Make your own carb studs. Treaded rod or cut off long bolt. Or you can order new studs. They are not expensive unless you go ARP.

Or since you live in AZ (I.E. HOT) you may want to install a spacer.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

I agree with Jason, make your own or get some at a local parts store, here's an example

I also agree with an insulating spacer, especially in hot climates, it will help with fuel perculation problems.

I would get some set screws, either black oxide or chrome and insert them into the holes.
