With everything disconnected, can you open the choke fully?

There is a plastic piece that sits into the carb housing that the linkage that connects the choke housing to the choke plate slides through. Is this causing the binding?

that was it. the cotter pin came out and allowed it to jump to the top instead of underneath. That is where it was hanging up. turned on the key and watched the choke plate open. All is good. Thanks for your continued help.

No problem. Glad we got it worked out.

no spark to number 3 cyl. changed wire nothing , no spark coming from #3 tower on distributor. Wire to ground- nothing. Changed rotor 180 spark went to another cylinder. Is this the way pertronix fails. Cap is new, rotor is new

going to get on pertronix website. I think it has to do with the magnets.

Had 3 guys on the motor today. All good with engines. All agree after checking everything out. It is either the magnets or the pertronix module. Called Summit and they never heard of such a thing .Will call pertronix on Monday Morning. Will report with findings.
