Hi All,

When I bought my '67 and started looking into why it runs so rich all the time, (with the help of Sparky the expert) we determined that some previous owner of this car installed a carb for a 455 engine, 1968 and later models. So my vehicle has been running with the incorrect carb and "choke stove coil" (officially named "Choke Housing with Rod and Thermostat on Manifold" per the parts manual).

We found and installed the proper carb for the 425 engine. Now I still have an incorrect "stove coil" that fits the 455 carb (I need the proper part for the 425), and as most everyone probably knows these are next to impossible to find. The AC Delco part number is 7027095. If anyone has any leads anywhere for finding one, I would greatly appreciate it. This particular part also fit the Cutlass F85 with a 300 engine, it seems.

Thanks in advance.

Well good news for me, I found another post on the forums for someone selling an engine from a '66. Unbelievably he still had the choke coil on the manifold. Just hoping now that it works :). But if anyone has leads I'd still like to hear them in case this one doesn't work or another one is needed in the future.

Thanks all.

RT - do you still have the incorrect one? I'm missing that for my '69 with the 455.

Roy,

Can you pass the info for the individual parting out the '66? I need to see if he has the carb and carb linkage rod. I've determined that my '66 has the incorrect carb along with the missing carb linkage rod.

Thanks
steven
