Have a problem with my 1974 2002

When I first start engine cuts out

Ignition system is the problem believe ther is a relay or something

Acts like a thermostat as engine warms up the problem goes away

I installed a bypass wire from battery car act normal

Remove wire problem returns

What am I missing just install 32weber choke working perfect

1. What kind of choke is installed on the weber?

2. Will it studder then die when cold? This is pretty normal... you may need to adjust your choke. With my electric choke on my weber I need to hold throttle open a little until warm. Nothing out of the ordinary, it's an older car and requires a little more manual input.

3. The ignition system (disregarding the starter) has no relays.

4. If it is an ignition problem, then it won't idle when warm either.

5. Has standard maintenance been done by a reputable mechanic? This includes adjusting timing, idle/mixture adjustment on carb, points replaced and gapped properly, points, condensor, wires, and coil are in good condition, valves adjusted to spec.

6. Do you have the EGR equipment hooked up?

7. Did you check for vacuum leaks?

We need some more information.

EDIT: What wire are you talking about that you "bypass"

Check your Fuse box. Don't recall the number of which one.

That wire is hot all the time with the key on.

If I understand and can translate- the power to the electric choke is not supplying power. The choke appears to be working when jumped from the battery.
