Carter BBD & Start/Carge electrical (double check please)

Ok first I'd like to say thanks for all the help I've gotten from this site. And please Keep in mind that I've built this from almost nothing with out any real help in person.

First are the Carb pix I know that the choke needs to connect to SOMETING, I just dont know what or how.


I labeled stuff as close to I could based on how it looked in the chilton.



Now the Starting/charging. It is hard to find any thing on line because every body seems to cobel together their own way.




Oh does any one know the thread pitch/size of the nuts for the posts on the solenoid?

Thanks much

Do you have a 1/4 inch tab on choke? I.E. Do you have a electric choke? I kind of remember mine having that and I have a electric choke and it does nothing.

No '79 isn't electric. I had a carb from an '80s? that had electric choke and the threaded part on this one was closed off on that one. and the electric one had pigtails coming from the back. All I can thin is it is Vac from some where and I need a threaded fitting?

Thanks though.

How does the electric look?

Just like yours. With a brass tab at the top for 12v power fed through the oil pressure switch.

The non electric like your set up may have exhaust piped to it to warm up the spring under the black cover. That was a type of choke control back in the day.......

They look right to me. But you need to spin your fuel filter so the vent tube is on top at 12 o'clock. Other then that it looks good.

In the pic, you can see that the choke connects into the exhaust manifold for heat to operate the choke.

Your second pic, the pcv is on the correct position.


Third pic of yours, the top vent goes to the charcoal cannister for venting the fumes from the carburetor.


On the solenoid on the firewall, those connect to the ignition switch and power the starter/ignition circuit.

More carb pics of mine. Sorry about the dirtyness of the engine and the incorrect fuel filter.




Pic of the back of the alternator.

I have only 3 wires on the alternator, and you can see them in this pic.

It is a zee shape and it goes into a hole in the top of the OEM exhaust manifold. I will see if I can get a better picture soon.

Not sure where the wire goes. Where does it start from?



In this pic, you can see where the choke heater tube goes.

Air conditioner compressor if you have one.

Seriously, they put it in all the harnesses even if you don't have AC
