I'm going to order a Weber with a manual choke from carbsunlimited.com. It's going in my '87 GL. How to you run the choke lever (or linkage, I don't know the proper term) through the firewall?

I was also thinking about ordering the water choke instead. They aren't a big deal to hook up, are they? It seems like it would just be one in hose and one out hose.

Yes, Water Choke is not a Big Deal, but Could I Ask Why Don't you Order the Electric Choke Version?

From what I've read the water choke is more accurate than the electric choke. I wouldn't mind having the electric but the water choke is only 10$ more.

It might be but then you have an additional coolant line to run, break, and deal with. The electric is already there with a factory wire you can use and most of the ones I have done or seen utilized the spade from the factory harness.
