I see vendors offer two different choke wires, one designated "original type" but no illustration. What's it supposed to look like ?

You can make your own.

John Regan's Fun Projects website has documents section, click on choke wire.

Here is the link in .pdf file.

Your local welding supply will have the 3/32"copper coated welding rod that's perfect for the job.

After making the Rod can it be passed through the front of the car with the 90 degree bend in it or do you make that part after you get it to the Carb?

You should be able to wriggle it through. Mine aren't quite exact to spec, but have a bend in 'em and I have no trouble doing it.

I made the right angle bend after putting it through the radiator to line up with the choke lever. I don't think it would go through with a full 90 bend.

If the hole in your radiator is anything like mine, the little dog leg at the end of the rod should slide in and out easily.

Yup, that will go, but you'll have trouble with 7/8" of a right angle bend like the drawing shows.

It goes through fine with the factory bends in a brand new hole.

Royce, what's the hole size please ?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Royce in Dallas TX on Friday, March 03, 2017 - 10:52 am:

5/32"

Thanks everyone. I'm going to try and make one soon.

Royce, once again my thanks !! You've answered so many of my dumb questions, if and when we meet in person (and I hope it's sooner than later) I want to buy you dinner !

I think if you look close enough there is a part of Royce's solutions and advice in all of our cars.

I posted a thread detailing how to mount a Brassworks radiator back in 2014. It shows how to located and drill the choke rod hole and the holes for the gas tubes in a new radiator. I can't seem to find it in a search.

Mike Walker makes very nice ones for all years, you might contact him. I have purchased quite a few from him and will this year too. He lurks on this site. Mike are you there? Mike

Yes, I'm here. Mine are sold by Lang's, and I'll have them for sale at Chickasha. There are about 10 variations thru the years. Sounds as if the OP would rather make his own.
