Re: Help solve my Weber problem(long)??
The choke plate should SNAP shut, 100% closed, when you open the throttle, on a cold engine.
If it doesn't, then something is binding, or it's not adjusted right. While cranking the engine, the plates will flutter a bit, but should return to fully closed if the engine doesn't start. Upon starting, the plates willopen about 10%, due to engine vacuum. After sensing oil presure, the electric choke will start to open the plates. The high idle cam is triggered by the choke plates closing. The high idle screw is on the valve cover side of the carb. The high idle cam will stay at high idle, even while the choke plates are opening, until the throttle is opened again.
Is your choke receiving power directly from the ignition switch or from the the oil pressure switch? I prefer to power the choke from the oil pressure switch, ( factory wired), this way the choke will not begin it's job until the engine starts. Otherwise the choke starts opening the plates as soon as the key is turned on.
Hope this helps, electric chokes can be a PITA , but when working right, it's a no brainer.
You had to do what to fit those little tires?
I'm sure glad I own a CJ!
