So,

On my 74 1400 when it is cold i get a lot of hesitation and what not, after it has warmed up a little bit, it runs fine. I figure it is possible that the choke plate is closed off too much, but i could be wrong.

any ideas?

Thanks,
-Dusty-

There is a thing called a choke-pull off assy. This opens the choke as soon as the car starts to allow some air in. Its a little vac diaphram attached to the chike plate.

Check to make sure its working.

Choke adjust is very easy. When the car is cold, adjust the choke plate so that it just closes. Usually if anything is wrong its the CPA.

If you changed them, then there should be clean spots as to where the choke was screwed down for so many years :)
