I needed my choke in the winter, not now...

Ugh, my choke is driving me nuts again. Well, its finally the summer and what is working now, my choke. It seems to be thinking its winter, not summer. So, now I start it up, choke works, but now sticks. Its an elect. choke for my holley so I'm not sure what to do about it. Anyone have ideas?

a quick fix is a 12 or 10 gauge wire made into a contraption that keep the choke flapper opened.... and secured to the air filter bolt post

make sure there's power to the choke,and that the cap is getting a good ground,either by separate ground wire,or by bolting it to the carb body.

turn the cap to the lean side.

My electric choke (on a 2150) wouldn't stay open so my temp fix was to zip-tie it open, then the permanent fix was to install a manual choke which has been flawless since. It was about $20-30 (?) at Napa.

But, I will fotnote that I knew squat about electric choke troubleshooting. If I did, I probably would've just fixed the electric choke.
