Question Manual or Electric choke? 84 GW

Possibly the most idiotic question one could ask, but I never mind, so here you go. When referring to a manual choke, is there actually a lever or plunger in the cab that you have to actuate to choke the vehicle? And, if that is indeed the case, and I don't have said lever or plunger, does that mean I have an electric choke? I'm away from my GW right now so I can't include a picture of the cab or under the hood, but I know to get mine choked a press of the pedal is all that is needed. Which sounds more manual than electric to me. Curious so that I can order the right Eddy carb, woo hoo!

Please enlighten the idiot. Me being said idiot. Also, as in the title, it's an 84 GW 360.

Thanks in advance.

Yep in a fully manual choke there should be a pull in the cabin of the vehical. Then there are the ones that have a temperature sensative sprin on the intake that pushes and pulls the choke rod based on the intake temp. The one on your GW should be an electric choke, so order the Edelbrock with the electric choke.

if its stock it probably is electric. sometimes there is a little tube that is attached to the choke that goes into a well in the manifold that is for hot air.my 90 had both. also electric choke will have at least one wire going to it .sometimes two one 12 volt one ground.

Get the 1406. I just put one on this weekend and it was a total piece of cake. The Cherokee is running way better with the carb than it did with the Holley Projection.

BTW, I still have that grille for you on the shelf in my garage. Just let me know when you want to come get it.

Yup, I've got a manual choke in the Honcho. Pull lever is inside the cab.

Perfect! I lost your number and had no clue how to get in touch with you. I will be back down to New Braunfels tomorrow, so that will be pretty close. PM me your info again and I'll come on by to get that grill. Thanks again! Love to check out the 1406 too, mine should be in in a couple days.
