Nice illustrations. Added to Help page under - Intake Manifold - Choke Tube Replacement
Jason i accidentally deleted this while viewing it on my smart phone at night. Is there a way to restore the pictures?
Jeff, No there is no way I can restore once you have deleted. Why not post another stand alone article and we can link to it instead of a reply within the article. Be sure to group all pictures together in the main post. The only other things I would add would be your source for the stainless tube and the dimensions. I bought like a 3' section of it off eBay way back but cannot find the info or dimension specs. There are also a couple of grades of stainless, one is more corrosion resistant and that would be good info to post also. We can also run it in the next newsletter under Tech Tips. So... please repost while still fresh up in the grey matter... and stay away from that delete button!
hi, I'd be very interested in your step-by-step on replacing that internal heat tube. did you ever restore the pictures that you deleted? thanks, Nile
So when your done you should see the choke tube like in this pic ?
The choke tube should be visible and with no cracks. I pressure check mine when I take an intake off. Fire up the compressor and put the rubber nipple to the blower on one end, and plug the other with my finger. You will hear a leak in the tube if it is cracked. After 50 years, it is just best to replace the choke tube.
