Hello engine master! I wasnt planning on using it yet. But because its from a 67, I wanted to purchase it, rebuild it and display it in my living room lol. One day, If my dream comes true and I find a 67 camaro project, I would be installing this relic on the engine. If im correct, this 67 is a divorced choke model so the choke is on the intake. I saw a video of it warming up. I fully understand what you mean though.If you do Not require originality AND you plan on driving it regularly --- you'll be much better served by a Qjet that either has an Electric Choke or can readily be converted to EC. Many Qjet cannot be easily converted --- just sayin'
