Re: Electric Choke..... How to slow it down...
The tech guys at BG told me to try a resistor to slow down the choke opening. Before doing that, I tightened the choke so that it opened more slowly (the same effect), but apparently the engine didn't like that and bucked and bucked for 30 seconds or so until the choke finally opened. I suspect it would also buck with a resistor.
I was able to adjust the four idle screws so that the car had a nice, strong idle when warming up, negating the use of my right foot. But then ten minutes later, when the engine was fully warm, it ran like crap and I had to readjust the screws.
I think this is just the nature of this beast. I have an automatic, so my right foot-method doesn't bother me. I'm used to it as I also right-foot it when the A/C compressor kicks on. If you try the resistor, please post your results.
Also, the manual choke sounds like a good idea. Post about that if you try it.
