1 Barrel Carb "Choke Set"
« on: January 05, 2015, 09:38:20 PM »
Would anyone have any idea where I could purchase a "Choke Set" for a 68 Camaro L6 250? To clarify what I'm looking for it would be similar to what is in the following link.

I'll start out by saying that I think the '68 choke thermostatic spring and choke rod are the same as the '67 (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).  For my '67 I purchased the thermostatic spring new from Napa back in 2001 and found a used choke rod off of the Camaros.net classifieds.  I'm not sure if the spring is still available new, but the rod back in '01 was only available as a used part.

The spring mounts in a depression of the exhaust manifold with two screws below the carburator.  Both of my screws had rusted and fused to the manifold, so I had to have them drilled out and re-tapped.  My choke rod had also rusted away so that the key that holds the rod into the spring was gone.

Good Luck,
Dan

The GM part number for a '68 L6 with manual transmission is 3927770, with automatic transmission is 3927772. Currently on ebay there are one of each GM NOS. The rod shouldn't be hard to find, and the clip is a standard item.
