    Does anyone know if you can get an electric conversion kit that is carb mounted and will allow you to run an aftermarket manifold and get away from the divorced choke all together? The only electric conversion kits I have found require you to still use the stock intake.

    Thanks!

    Some of the older aftermarket intakes from Weiand and Edelbrock have provision for a divorced choke. You might be able to find something newer that has it too, or locate an older version of the intake.

    you could always just treat it as a manual choke. set it and take it off with your foot. just would be all the way off or all the way on.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I'll probably just keep digging around and find a newer quadrajet I guess

    Yup, you can't convert a divorced choke carb to electric choke but you can convert it to a hand choke.
