Re: Is there a way to make a Holley less cold natured?

Not too far south of you in SC, my 66 has an old Holley 01850 manual choke carb. I did not want to run a choke cable so I just wired it wide open. Also a 350 with 882 heads, HEI, Eddy Performer intake and a Comp XE262.

It starts hot or cold and can be driven away almost immediately. Being a stick makes it easier.

I was thinking about adding the elect choke but really don't seem to need it. If the ignition and carb are good and adjusted, it should fire and be able to drive off within less than a minute.

66 Malibu Coupe, home rebuilt 350. Took me 39 years to get her!
