    Honestly, I don't know what's opening the choke, I just know that the trucks fires right up, and runs. Drove it yesterday for some errands around town (about 60 miles) and no problem, runs smoothly and better

    Already running a Petronix, installed an old dizzy from a 77 620, since it has single points instead of double points. At this moment I'm running the truck with the e-choke disconnected. Installed a new Weber

    Funny thing, it always fire up, no need to press the gas pedal or wait to warm up. Maybe it was so old that it work 😂 🤣 😅 I know the throttle cable was bend, maybe that was helping.

    I thought it was a neg, but it makes sense what you're saying. I'll check the sensor and clean it, I'll let you know. Thanks

    Thanks Hainz, I'll look for the wire. Funny, because I tried one, and truck wouldn't fire, now my temperature gauge does not work (used one hot wire that used to connect to the pos for dizzy (old points) I think the I fried the temperature sensor, since I unplugged it and the gauge shows hot when grounded

    Thanks Gene, my truck is just picky, she wanted new wires and spark plugs. Now she's back, better with the new cab. Just need to do some carb adjustment and find the wire for the e-choke

    A couple of weeks ago, I started the 521 and the idle went thru the roof, over 2500. Turned her off and adjusted the carb, got her to play nice but it was rough, sounded like I had a V8 under the hood. I thought it was the carb, since it was an old weird Weber with no butterfly or choke. I order the right one and installed it, but it keep acting up, it idles but when the gas is pressed, it just dies. Checked for compression, since the engine sounds awful and this is what I get: 1st Piston 2nd Piston: 3rd Piston 4th Piston Any ideas you guys can give me?

    Thanks Crash... That's the same one I have, ended up bending it to the right a little and now I have an almost accurate reading

    I was working on it today and finally found out the problem. The lead or point where the Yello wire connects is messed up, kind of loose. Now is working but marks half when full... I know, my fault since I bent the unit thinking it was too long 😒

    Thanks, I owned 3 sets, the original 14in with chrome hubs, a set of 15x8 and the 15x10 currently on. Engine still stuck, had a leak on my exhaust system, I installed the headers, since it was wider, had to do new exhaust from header back. The pipe was from an old Integra I had, just welded at the end.

    Thanks Mike for the quick response. Yes, sender moves easily. I bended just a little thinking it was too long and was hitting the end of tank. When I holded beside tank, that's when it look longer, that's why I bended. Sender is not original, is an ebay sender.
