i know that the chevy monzas with the 3.8 buick v-6 DID have electric chokes on the 2G-----which means it's actually a 2GE.


Why were you wanting to know?

They make a alum ring to adapt the elec. choke to the original housing, if you need the vendor PM me.

Thanks - that's the answer I was looking for and didn't know it. Q-jets are by far the most common source of electric chokes which will fit the 4GC.

Of course, just my luck, the one QJ core I own has a heat choke.

Is there a down-side to running the exhaust-gas type choke on the 2bbl Rochester?

In my opinion, no. No disadvantage to the heat crossover type either.

Electric is probably simplest though, besides manual.

Second with the boat carbs, you can at least rob the choke setup off of one.
