I have an early L78 carburetor off a 396/375 hp with a divorce choke, I would like to use it on my 462 cu/inch big block in my 1967 Camaro. The problem is I can't
seem to find the right spring that sets in the intake so it heats up and opens the choke. Has anybody solved the problem?

Name of your post sets a bad precedent.

I once received one by mail. My wife saw the invoice “divorced choke”. She was concerned, to say the least. 😁
Yep usually happens after the fact.

Caution: There were a couple of different spring setups throughout the years. Also there are different rods that are specific to different carburetors. Make sure you have the right one. All of the rods need to be bent to refine the choke operation.
You probably already knew this.
