Re: Holley electric choke problems and frustrations!!!
Try closing the choke all the way and see what happens. It sounds like the idle circuit might be a little lean also. Depending on the entire engine combination, it might not ever work 100% like you want it to.
Which carb is it ? Manifold ? EGR hooked up and working ? Vacuum advance working ? Timing adjusted properly ?
Also, the fast idle speed should be adjustable. There should be a small screw that hits on the cam and adjusts the speed. You might need to speed it up a little, there are steps on the fast idle cam and once it is off the first step, the idle just might not be fast enough for that in between period from totally cold to warmed up.
I know you wont want to hear this, but as much as I love Holley carbs and have used them in performance applications for close to 40 years now, I would never have one on a vehicle like that. It would have a Quadrajet or it would be converted to fuel injection.
