Thanks Terry, this is great I understand this system very well now... Ok about the Auto-Choke Shaft and Lever Assembly, the lever works, it touches the shaft of the pull off vacuum system, I just left the plates open in the video so there is no contact between the shaft and the lever, but if I close the choke plates they do move as I push the shaft... I┤m pretty sure the problem is the vacuum signal, I may have blocked this path when I installed the carb with a homemade gasket, I'm not sure...
I understand the best thing to do would be to have the choke working properly and restore this vacuum system, however I would need to drop the carb to do that so I will leave it for next time I have to remove it, in the meantime I will install the manual choke which is something I've always wanted to have, upon reassembly I made sure the eyelet on the bimetal spring fitted properly with the choke plates lever so now they are set at the open position and the choke is disconnected.
One piece of good news, this morning when I started the Jeep I had to give it a little gas because there was no choke but it started right up and no more black smoke or misfires, which is what I was trying to get rid of in the first place, so I call this thread a success!!
Terry you are a wealth of knowledge, thank you very much working with you is always a pleasure, thanks for mentoring me on this!
