Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Outside choke pull rod

I just got a choke rod, the one used when hand-cranking , for my '21. Where exactly does it pass thru the radiator/shell and how should I attach it to the lever on the carb?

There should be a small hole in the shell on the passenger side bottom.

No hole. My shell is a new replacement. Where do I drill the hole? Should there be a grommet in the hole? Thanks.

Thanks Steve. Will the rod flex enough to hook or do you remove the carb to hook it?

There was a metal grommet when new. You don't see them very often now.

Put the end of the rod through the choke lever arm and bend the end down.

Since you didn't tell us the year of your car, find another owner of a T with a known correct radiator, or radiator shell. Use that dimension for drilling you hole. I've seen countless radiators that have been drilled for the choke wire in the wrong place. Their is no excuse for this.

Brass works shows were to drill their radiators according to year for proper placement

Again Larry, a thanks for nothing. The OP posted the year of his car in the body of his text.
