#1: Auto Choke Question

Posted on 2006-07-21 21:49:52 by Jakalope

AAAAAAAahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

This auto choke is giving me fits. I can't seem to get it adjusted
correctly. Like I said in an earlier post.... If I let my 71 type1
warm up using the gas pedal (lightly) for about a minute, it runs and
idles perfect, like a new car. The problem is that I have to sit and
"help" it for the first minute or two. When facing the choke
adjustment, does turning it clockwise increase the choke or decrease
it. I have read some negative things about the auto choke; perhaps
it's just not functioning at all. Do I even need the thing, as I'm
basically manually choking it for the first minute or so with the gas
pedal?

ANY suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Oh, it's a 71 bug with a 34pict3 carb. It seems that no matter where I
adjust it, it needs help to keep running at first. I have tried
several chokle positions. Like I stated, after a minute or two she
purrrrrs.

Loosen the three screws that are around the choke retaining ring, and
then rotate the thing as if you were rolling it towards you with your
hand(CCW if you are facing it from the passenger side of the vehicle).

Do the adjustment on a cold engine. If you hold the throttle arm open
as you rotate the choke element you will see the fast-idle cam start to
move down so that it will hold the throttle open for you slightly when
cold. If you do not see the choke plate or the fast idle came move as
you turn the heater then you need to remove the retaining ring(take all
three screws out....don't lose the spacers behind the screws), unplug
the wire to the heater, and pull the heater out of the carburetor. It
is possible that the hook and/or element itself is broken. You'll see
how it works once you pull the heating element off.

Good luck with it.

I just snuck away from my desk, borrowed a screwdriver and turned
that thing counterclockwise as far as it would go. No small
adjustment. It started up and ran w/o giving it any gas!!!!!! We may
have a winner.

Thanks,

John, what you need to do now to insure you have not went too far, is remove
the air cleaner and then start the car...make sure that after 2-3 minutes
the choke plate will return to verticle...if not you will be running with
the choke on all the time(at least partially) and you will be running
terribly rich....that means extra wear on cylinders and horrible fuel
economy...
