Type of choke


Guest Anonymous

Recommended Posts

If there is a wire running to it (or it has an electrical connector sticking out of it that does not have a wire on it) it is an electrical choke. If it has 2 water hoses hooked up to it (or 2 hose barbs sticking out of the choke housing without hoses) it is a water heated choke. The choke housing is the round thing sticking out of the passenger side of the carburetor.

Preyupy, on the passenger side of my Weber are (1) two hose barbs both pointing to the firewall and (2) a male tab, electrical connector. Is it possible that I can use either one?

Another question: If I use the water aspect of the choke, where do the hoses connect at the other end?

Thanks!!

It'd be more-than-difficult to have both types of chokes on that (your) Weber carb....

The electrical connection you're seeing is likely a shut-off soleniod (valve) on the idle jet (it closes the idle jet as soon as ignition is turned off, to prevent fuel from entering carb). -KB

I agree with Kmb02 I'll bet the electrical connector is the idle jet shut off. The water runs from a fitting at the back of the block right below the #4 intake runner to the carb and then from the other fitting on the carb to the pipe running under the manifold to the waterpump (runs under the alternator) The electric choke is a lot easier to deal with, Personally I would rather have a manual choke and use the cable like the early BMW carbs did.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
