    Is there a replacement for my Rochester 1 barrel that will permit me to start and drive my car without using the choke? I only ask because I’ve bought dozens of holley manual choke carbs for V8’s and never needed a choke. What are my options?

    Or is there a way to rig it to where it doesn’t require a choke?

    I think all carbs are either manual or auto choke, and it's necessary. You can have a manual choke and manually choose to not use it though.

    he was from Nigeria, I banned him. It is terribly important to report these kinds of things before they get a chance to screw someone. I also removed the scam email from everyones quotes

    And to the OP, if you don't need a choke to start and drive your car cold, chances are it is way too rich. why not just install a hand choke, It is traditional plus probably a theft deterrent to anyone under the age of 60

    Oh no it still requires the good old choking. And HAHA to the last part.
