put a new quadrajet on freinds car, he has big cam and headers, My question is what actually works the choke, since there is no manifolds with those heat risers or what ever they are called. We were just gonna remove all that stuff but NOt sure what to take off and what to leave, IT also has a pin at the back barrels thats will not allow the 4 barrel to open if the choke is engauged is this nesseary. My carb dont have that so I was unfilmilar. BAsiclly wanting to no if it will all work properly like it is(choke part & 4 barrel) Or do we need to tae some stuff off it. Also it says that its is a preset carb but It runs awsome but dont wanna idle at all, the only thing I tried was idle speed screw but IT still wont idle for long before it dies.

quadrajets are simple to adjust very easy to adjust opening timing and opening rate. I took the choke and made it stick open. If your likage for choke is set right the pin that blocks secondaries from opening will be disingaged.

Take the choke plate And Shaft out then remove or cut that Cold engine/ 4bbl limiter tang out
