I have searched old threads and didn't see anything that applies to my problem. I Have 68 camaro with 350 SB, TH350 auto, edelbrock performer rpm manifold and new Holley street avenger (570cfm) carb. Bear with me here, as I'm relearning things I forgot and learning things I never knew.
It seems like the electric choke isn't working, 'cause when you start it up cold you have to hold the throttle down to keep the revs up until it gets warm enough to idle by itself. After it's warm, it idles around 1200 rpm in park or neutral and in drive stopped at a light it idles fine around 800 rpm. Car doesn't seem to have any driveability problems.
I checked the voltage to the choke and it is getting the 12V it wants; I have not changed anything on the choke and it is still set to the factory position (mid-range).
