I had a DVCV like yours on my 71 351c and didnt really find much info as to how it really worked or which cars it was on.

Below is the documentation I did find. When tracing the wires on mine, it appears that the top electrical post was connected to switched 12v which then went to the electrical choke on the carb. Dont know if thats right or wrong though.

I ended up removing it and replacing it with just the standard 3 port DVCV and connecting the 12v to the carb choke. Still have the original wiring I took off and can probably dig out, if you wanted to see what it looked like. Maybe controlled the choke based on engine temp??

Thanks Steve. As its now a holley on the car with a manual choke I wonder if that's why it might have been removed?

Yes, since you have a manual choke, it sounds logical thats probably why they removed that connector. If you dont like the look of the unconnected top, you could also just put in the normal 3 port DVCV.

By the way, if anyone has a DVCV like that and needs the factory wiring, since from another post it sounds like that connector is hard to find, I still have the wiring that I can send out free of charge.

Steve, I could use it if it is in good shape. The one I found for my car has a cut in one of the wires near the clip and I can’t repair it... Let me know please and thanks.Ken
