OK so my choke hasn't worked in quite a while, it's not a huge deal here in AZ but it is cold enough to make my Grand run like crap until it warms up.

Anyway, the plastic part that you adjust for rich or lean and has the wire going to it seems all screwed. I can just move it back an forth and pretty much pull it out if I wanted to, what locks that piece in place so that it doesn't move? I can't see anything around it that you would loosen up to adjust it so how does it stay in place?

Napa has the plastic part with the spring in it, but I don't know if that's what my problem is, because I still don't know what should hold it from moving around.

I admit I'm being lazy and haven't really looked at it all that close, I figured I'd get an answer here instead. [img]smile.gif[/img]

That round plastic part was originally held on by 3 rivets with tabs around them that held the cover in place. Typically, these rivets get drilled out at some time and replaced by screws, but retaining the tabs that hold down the cover. If you were to purchase a choke assembly for the carb, it should have all the parts you need to gets yours working again.

I haven't found an entire choke assembly for sale anywhere, just the round plastic part or the choke pull off assy.
Is the round plastic part really all I need?

There is supposed to be a gasket between the plastic housing and the carb body. The retainer ring also goes on a certain way to keep it tight. If you're carb or choke have been messed with in the past, check these areas. Hopefully, you don't have the rivets.

If you just get the round plastic part, it *should* come with the spring inside it, 3 screws and 3 hold down tabs.

That sucks! Napa has the part online (pn CRB2158), but of course they don't have it in stock at any Napa near me and the guy said it's a special order part.

I got the replacement from NAPA about a year ago for my last 88 J10. It was pricey (and I get the jobber discount) and did not come with the retainer ring or the screws.

If you are near Ecology on 27th Ave., they have a GW in the back of the truck section right now. As of Monday, the carburetor was still on it. A whole carb is only like 15 bucks, if you want to buy the whole thing.

I might have to go check that out. I live in down town Phoenix so it's not too far.

Thanks for the heads up.
