1974 Ford Mustang ii 2.3L 4 Cyl carburetor replacement

Asked by: 10 views Engine Question

I am unsure how to connect the electric choke to a new 5200 series Holley carburetor. It looks like I need to cut the wire from the alternator and add a connector to it, so it will connect to the new carb. Also, is there anything I need to do with the coils when re-attaching the electric choke to the carb?

Oh, and there is an extra hose now that I switched out the carburetor.  The fuel line is connected, the throttle cable is good, but I see no where to reconnect this extra hose.  I am not even sure where the other end of the hose is connected to.  That’s a vague statement, but I’m hoping someone might have had this same issue in the past.  Thanks everyone.

    Check this if you haven’t:

    I do not have any good knowledge in carburettor swapping in these engines. But I will leave the question open for any more answers.

    But yes, normally you have one wire between the choke and one pin on the alternator and If you need to take 12volt or 12volt ignition+, I would suggest you make sure that the wire is fused.

    Any pictures of the vacuum hose? If it’s going to the intake manifold and you have no use for it, plug it.
