Re: 550 choke question in reply to oliver90owner, 11-14-2013 22:57:20
Sorry, not much history. I bought it a year and a half ago, it has been like this the whole time. It hits on all 4 cylinders, at least it sounds like it.
I have been working hard to get my 88 back up for the last 10 days. Now that it is up, I am going to take the 550 out of service and pull the manifolds for a look see. I am going to replace the exhaust manifold with a header, since I cannot find a new one, and mine is broke big time. I'll post what I find.
Of course, if someone has any other ideas, please post 'em! <grins>

Not aware of what carb you have, but I once had a marvel shebler on an 80 which had a boring blocked on the slow speed side, which stopped it running slow. I think it was all OK if you could get it onto the power jet side (revs up), but gave up as soon as back to tick-over. A bit of a job to find as the blockage was well up the boring. I am lucky enough to have a known working replacement, so I soon knew it was that carb that was the problem
