My Choke Thermostat when bad so I had to get a new one.  The new ones rotate the opposite way so that the choke closes when heated.  Anyone else experience this before?Continue

My 1963 eldorado wont start cold without pouring fuel into the carb. Other than that it runs great. Fuel bowl leak? Easy fix?
