ea81 coolant flow question, weber water choke...
Posted 02 February 2005 - 12:59 PM
first off of the heater hose pipe, there is a small one that connectes to the base of the carb mount.
second is one that connects from the intake manifold, just on the front side of the t-stat housing (the cold side) down to the little pipe that sticks out of the passenger side top of the block.
currently I have the weber water choke plumbed in line with the second hose listed above....
so I guess I need to know which way the coolant flows through that second hose...? (without unhooking a side to see :cool: ) I already know the first hose flow direction... but it was easier to plumb into the second one initially....

take WAYYYYY too long to open
get stuck easily
run rich for above reasons
if they break they can flood your engine - literally
sometimes never do and cause really crappy power loss
you have so much more control with a manual choke
I am probably biased because I overhauled an MG Midget with one and had to install a manual choke to get it to pass emissions, and before we did we had problems in all the afforementioned catagories save the choke blowing up (though I saw a junked car where that happened)
Graned it was not a Weber carb, but the principle has issues.
However you plumb it, make sure that water is flowing at all times, and that it is not governed by the thermostat.
