I have a 1970 Cadillac Calais. I've recently had to change my stock carburetor because National Carburetor does not offer a rebuilt model for my make. I purchased a 1411 Eldelbrock for 214 from them with a life time warranty. Question is I do not know where to hook up the electric choke too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I will also be dropping the gas tank this week to change the strainer inside of it.. Im guessing its 40 years old also.
Well i finally got my cadillac running good and the electric choke hooked up. I wired up an additional accessory fuse panel under the hood which should also help when I can switch to hei. only 3 things left to do before I can focus on the inside of the car and paint. Remove rusted exhaust manifold bolts (one broken bolt) and replace with new ones and gaskets, order my front suspension kit from this comapny I found which has cheap prices for lifetime warranty. $369 and it includes everything except upper ball joints because they are out of stock. do an alignment then its finished essentially
On the subject of exhaust gaskets.. I would not use any.. But if I feel I had to use a gasket I would use a solid copper one.. MTS sells them.. If you put the part store gaskets on there they well blow out and be loud.. With no gasket they will leak a tiny bit and over time quiet up... They came stock without gaskets..
