Chug,

I don't want to discourage you. My point is, you'll be more productive, and make better use of the knowledge here, if you at least make the effort to crack a manual open. Or, at least review the Sprynet website we linked to earlier.

The forum doesn't exist to explain what a electric choke is, or looks like, or how it operates. Those are basics that any shade-tree mechanic should understand before attempting the mods that you are doing, IMO. This a technical forum, not a high school auto shop class.

I'm sorry to be harsh, but at this point I sense that you are flailing willy-nilly style, hoping to stumble upon the magic bullet that will solve your problems, without any basic understanding of what you are doing.

Matt

Ok first of all, I have a damn Haynes manual. Second, yes I have looked through all of the manual including the diagrams for the wiring. Third, yes I know this is not a high school auto class but all im trying to do is get some guidance here, no reason to go hostile on me

well said... the Haynes manual does leave a lot to the imagination doesn't it.. I have it and the chiltons, and I still refer back to the good ol FSM, which if you'd like I'll send you a copy of.. its way to big of a file to try to email it, unless I send it to you in sections.. at any rate, just overlook some of the crankiness, try to see through the mud, and most of these guys will bend over to help.. some have done most of this stuff so many times, they don't have patience enough to bare with people.. it'll work out, and you'll sit back and laugh when you find it.. let me know on the FSM.. you can PM me with an email and I can try section at a time if you want, or mail you a copy.. wayne

My apologies.

I'll bow out of this because my patience level is poor, this morning, and I'm not helping.

BTW, I constantly refer to my Haynes manual for answers. Heck, the engine overhaul pages of my manual are almost worn out from use. No, it's not as complete as the FSM, but I find it much easier to use for most tasks.

Good luck,

Matt

Im not trying to magically solve all of my problems, im trying to cross off things that could be my problem and the choke is one of those things

stick around Matt, your knowledge is still very valuable, just kick it in a lower gear and ride the wave.. we all appreciate everyones input, but, not everyone has "all" the knowledge or patience to teach.. its easy to fix, but harder to teach to fix.. otherwise, hell, we'd all be TEACHERS, heaven forbid!..

Good plan.

Nothing is going to work on a cold engine until we get that choke working.

Have you ever had it running long enough to warm up the engine?

would it just be better to convert it into a manual choke, wont this solve this whole headache of finding the correct wires to power the e-choke?
