Im not 100 % sure if that combo will work but if you have any contacts with any classic car clubs and they have southern car models that had that option in 71 should steer you in the right direction

Its possible that your catalytic converter is clogged and its not letting you get sufficient power when you press the gas. If its the gear thats now powering enough, there may be a possible problem with the transmission.

The automatic choke on a 2001 ford explorer seems to be inoperative. When the engne is cold it will not idle and stalls. once the engine is warmed up the symptoms go away. where is the choke located


Well it doesn't have a choke. There are a couple of common problems for this symptom. One is a defective Idle air control motor. The other is leaking intake manifold gaskets.

Weber carburettor problem on 1971 Ford Cortina


it has a choke plate used for cold starting
if it has 2 throats ( venturis ) then the second throat butterfly is most likely vacuum operated in which case the diaphragm for the operation will be faulty
I suggest that you take it to an accredited shop that overhauls carbies , and firstly have the manual choke fitted then have the unit overhauled

1971 RANGER HAS NO POWER. MY RANGER PICKUP HAS 84000 MILES. IT STARTS RIGHT AWAY BUT AFTER IT IS DRIVEN A SHORT DISTANGE IT LOSES POWER. YOU CAN PUT IT INTO NEUTRAL AND PRESS THE ACCELERATOR BUT THE ENGINE...


this usualy points that the water leak to the cylinder is not fixed. using another can of of bars leak will not help. the only advice i can b´give you right now is to get the cylinder head gasket fixed, before the cylinder head gets burnings, make a "few 100$" repair a 1000$ repair.

1980 ford f100 choke no voltage


I have somewhat of the same problem but not really. I would check the fuse but you have probably done that. I would run new medium grade wire from powerpoint ( 12V source ) that is hooked up to your ignition. Then run to your choke wire. you can also do a manual set of the choke to get it started. My choke doesn't work at all and needs to be replaced. Having the same starting problem though.
