Choke Question

Hi All,
I have recently purchased a 4x4 1969 Suburban with i6 250 ci engine. I will try to make it as stock as possible.. My question is about the choke. Looking to the carburetor, it looks like it is an automatic choke. And as far as I have read on the forum and owners manual, this is the standard automatic Rochester carburetor.

But also I have a pull type switch (looks like the choke switch). Is this for the choke? Is my carburetor aftermarket? (Or is the button/switch?)

Thank you in advance..

Regards

Sinan

Re: Choke Question

Welcome Sinan!
Yes your carb has been changed to an automatic choke type.
Originally it would have been a manual choke type.
The choke/switch is stock. It’s just a cable connection to your carb.
You need some more parts on your intake and carb to make that carb work correctly.
You can adapt a manual choke kit to that carb or if total originality is needed you’ll need to find a correct carb.
Take some more pics for us.
Not closeups like you have now.

And here’s a link to some pics of what your carb should look like.

Re: Choke Question

Hi,
Sorry for delay.. i had some trouble trying to take and resize pictures..
So i think i have to either add a manual choke/find stock carburetor(might be difficult here) or fond missing parts for the auto choke so that it works corect?
Here are the pictures, hope they are okay..

Thank you!

Re: Choke Question

Very good pics!
Your intake doesn’t have the parts on it to hook up your carb automatic choke.
And your carb doesn’t have the parts on it to hook up a manual choke.
You either need a new intake or a new carb.
Neither one is a good solution.
A new carb doesn’t come with the bracket you need to hook up the choke cable.
A new intake won’t come with the automatic choke parts.
I’ll post a link to what your choke should look like.
You can get choke conversion kits that will allow you to hook up your existing choke cable to your carbs automatic choke.
One like this. It comes with a new cable too.

Here’s the link to pics of what your choke should look like.

Re: Choke Question

actually, does a 69 have a manual choke? the choke knob stopped being in the dash in 1968.
I may be wrong, ive only owned 67 ad 68`s but im pretty sure theres no choke knobs in 69-72

Re: Choke Question

Mine is 1969 and there is a choke button. I am pretty sure because VIN number mach and Chevrolet letters are on the grille..

Actually as it is not quite possible to make it run with the automatic choke, I have to source these manual choke kits you mentioned

Re: Choke Question

That would be the best thing to do.
There are some on eBay in England. Closer too you than the US.
