hi all i have a 78 dodge w200 with a 400 that has a carter competition series carb on it im having a heck of a time trying to tune this thing , for one it has an electric choke on it that is not working because it was never hooked up to a power wire . it has 2 terminals i dont know which one is pos and which is neg and how to adjust the choke . i know how to set the idle and idle mix but thats it does anyone have a manual for this thing that they could scan for me ? im used to holley never messed with a carter or edelbrock before ,thanks everyone

Check out the Ohio chapter board. Although it doesn't look to be terribly active.

lol i noticed that . not many of us on here i guess but then again not many offroad areas in ohio either . most the lifted trucks i see in ohio are parkining lot cruisers. Im slowly getting the bugs worked out of the carb I found a couple vaccuum leaks that i fixed and got the choke adjusted better so it now fires up easy and idles on its own but still a little rich much better than it was though revs quicker doesnt bog down no where near the black smoke it did have and has a much cleaner smelling exhaust but still a little more tuning is needed  .
