Hi Krity,
does your car has an auto choke or a manual choke?

    Hi Krity,

    I think that you can check the two hoses that brings water to the carburettor upper part. This is where the autochoke component is. When you turn on the engine, let it heat up alittle bit and hold the hoses to see if they are hot. If they are then it means that the flow of hot water is there and the autochoke component is faulty. If they are not hot, then there is no flow of water meaning that there must be a blocked hose or circuit somewhere.

    Let us know how you get on.

My 85 dodge ram 50 2.0 pu idle running high and will not idle down when warm.

1985 Dodge Ramcharger Carburetor

As you can see, this carbureted engine has an electric choke. The cold sets that butterfly on the choke plate and there is a heater coil that warms up and disengages it. IF that electric choke heater burns out, it wont release the choke plate.

Cold choke baffle has 3/16 opening minute I pump accelerator choke thermostat closes primary baffle shut no air to start I force choke open to start why insufficient air to run at high idle?

Your engine probably has an automatic choke device that adjusts automatically with engine temperature. To set the choke when the engine is cold you have to depress the accelerator to the floor and release it completely. You shouldn't have to depress the accelerator again to start the engine, turn the key the engine should start. As the engine begins to warm up it will also begin to initially run faster then it will start to run rough. At this point you have to press the accelerator and release it again. The auto choke mechanism should allow the choke butterfly to open. There may be a number of stops in the system and the choke butterfly will stop again still not fully open and only become fully open when the engine is at operating temperature. Hope this answers you question, Rgs. Bob

Brakes pulsate when you put them on. When I take off from a complete stop it feels like the brakes are not releasing immediately.

Pulsating brakes are often caused by warped brake rotors. In order to check for a brake that isn't releasing I would suggest lifting one wheel at a time, applying the brakes and immediately checking if that wheel turns freely. Repeat on all 4 wheels. If you find one that isn't turning freely you'll have to address the problem with that brake.

1975 Datsun (ie. mechanical fuel pump). Carburettor, electrics (inc. battery all good) fuel strainer all good. On cold start engine needs to be cranked several times. Warm start is invariably immediate. ...

Carburated vehicles ether have an automatic choke, or the very old ones, a hand choke. Yours has an automatic choke. The starting problem likely is a problem with the choke. The problem is almost certainly not the fuel pump.To set the automatic choke, push the accelerator to the floor, and RELEASE. Then start the engine just like you would a fuel injected vehicle. If this doesn't solve the problem, then the automatic choke needs to be repaired.

Sometimes to start you have to give it a lot of

This sounds like a cold start system fault, which is a number of things.
  1. Cold start temperature sensor not operating correctly so the cold start system won't work when the engine is cold.
  2. The idle needs to be set to the correct RPM of the engine when warm, if it is idling ok when it is warm then this wont be the problem.
  3. Spark Plugs are worn and need replacing.
Most case's its the cold start system not operating correctly and if you have a good workshop to take it too they should pick this up quite quickly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Secondaries not opening

Try manually compressing the rod on the vacuum diaphram as if it were working and see if it will release the linkage when the choke is fully open. If that works its probably just a bad choke pull off. Diaphram could be bad in it.

Usually, there is a way to adjust the position of the choke. I've seen two ways:
1) The electric assist might be able to be rotated or re-positioned by loosening its screws.
2) The choke positioning lever can be bent or extended by straightening it with pliers to fully close the choke plate.
