Ok, so today I wired the choke up properly to a 12v source only when ignition is "on" (with 10amp fusible link) and the negative to a good ground.
Turned ignition key to "on" position and the "plate or Butterfly" never closed to activate the choke sequence. I even started car, briefly, but the choke "plate" never went to the closed position.
After car engine was off (only ran for like 15 seconds at most), I felt the outside of the plastic choke cover and it was warm.
So, am I supposed to loosen the three screws on the plastic choke cover and adjust choke until its in closed position and then start car? Just cant figure out how to get choke closed before I start the car. I can push the "plate" closed with my finger, but it wont stay in that position (when car is not running).
The initial choke setting is closed. The electric heater opens the choke.
To adjust the choke:
Back off the three screws holding the cover until you can turn the cover with a little resistance.
Turn the cover until the choke plate closes. You will have to open the throttle a little so the choke can close all the way. Only turn the cover enough so the plate "just" closes, not a lot of pressure on it.
Tighten the three screws.
This is the starting point.
Start the engine and watch the choke plate, it should slowly open.
It may need to be a little tighter or a little looser for your engine to be happy.
When the engine is cold, push the accelerator to the floor one time to "set" the choke.
