What is this plate?

And how do I fix it?



It used to have two lines running up to the carb but one broke off. I dont see a way to repair the line or the plate.
I thought about plugging it and whatever it was feeding on the carb.

I dont even know what to call it at the auto parts store to get a new one.

Any ideas?

Choke Stove heater pipe.

The lower section is a coil of hollow tube sitting in the exhaust crossover. It is self contained and won't cause any leaks if the tube is intact. It is designed to transfer exhaust heat to the choke to open the choke as it gets warmed up.

Hit the junkyards for the parts.

Swap to a manual choke and JB Weld the ones just in case the inside cracks.

With enough PB blaster to remove the rust, you may be able to use an easy out to remove the short piece of tubing left inside, probably the only time an easy-out will work. As the whole unit is pretty well rusted I would soak the nuts with pb blaster. The usual rule is to try to tighten a bit to break rust.

I get the universal choke stove kit. The replacement tube has a small end to fit into the tube on the plate.

I seem to have a problem with this plate as well. the two tubes going into it have been "sealed" with red RTV silicone. What problems would come from a leak in these tubes?

The carb choke will not open as fast if the passage are blocked. Check your choke opening for full aperture when the engine is at operating temp.
