Holley 5200 carb. water choke.
« on: March 10, 2020, 10:35:33 AM »
My 1977 Pinto powered car has a Holley 5200 carb on it.  Runs great when warmed up but hard to start when cold. Easy start fluid helps when cold! It has the water choke fitted. THe butterflies never move from the open position, hot or cold.  Anyone know how to set it up so they close when cold?


Thanks in advance.  Fred

On the side of that plastic piece (choke thermostat) there should be arrows indicating rich or lean. I forget which.
