Thinking about adding manual choke for cold weather starts. Looking for advice about doing this.

I guess you can put a choke on it, I always pumped the throttle a bunch of times and even on the coldest days I got it started, had to jiggle the throttle a bit using the accelerator pump as a primer of sorts but never needed a choke, they just end up causing trouble. maybe a squirt of starter fluid for those super cold days.... to help things along.

I have a 350 manual choke Holley on my engine, never have had a problem with the choke, beats having to sit there playing with the throttle, while the engine warms up!

Thanks for the feedback. I had always done the same with throttle pumping during warm up, but hated having the engine running that rough til warm. I did install the choke assembly and it works well.
