    Hey, forgot to thank you for sending those John Deere photos...looked great.
    Must be great fun restoring them. I rode a similar lawn tractor many years ago for a summer, cutting grass for a neighbor.
    All the best,

    Jason

    Hey 79FordBlake,

    Just thought I'd email you and let you know that your tips helped me fix the auto choke on my '73 302. I ended up running copper line up from the ex. manifold into a
    brass press. ferrule nut and then onto the back of the choke. The previous owner
    had disabled the choke-turned the dial all the way to the right (open)...not like we need it much here in California. It does seem to idle a bit high after a minute or so, so I'm going to tweak it a bit. Hey...saw in your bio area that you restore old Deere tractors...very cool. Have any pictures you could show me?....I'm kinda fascinated with the old equipment....worked on dairy farms as a kid.
    Best,

    Hi there,

    Just realized that you'd sent me a message a while back offering help on my 302 auto choke issues. Sorry, I just found the link! If I had known you had replied I would have contacted you to say thanks much sooner! Thanks for taking the time to help me...I appreciate it very much...I'll keep you posted on my progress. Best, Jason

    Hi there,
    I was wondering if you could answer a question for me....I'm a relatively inexperienced mechanic and had a question in regards to my 302 engine
    in my 1966 F250. From what I've been told, the engine came out of a 1973 Fairlane, the numbers seem to indicate this on my checking...
    and I was wondering where the choke hooked up on it, as when I purchased the truck, it had a new choke knob (NOS) and cable assembly that is simply coiled up in the engine compartment. I'm actually a helicopter mechanic aprentice and pilot, and only really work on turbines, so you have to forgive me. I've enclosed a photos on my album page.
    It gets a little cold in the mornings here sometimes, and it'd be great to have the choke keeping it idling easier while I stay warm in the house!
    Best,
    Jason

    I almost threw it away this past weekend. I did however gut the choke mechanism. But I kept it. I'll make sure I have the choke stuff and let you know.

Pics of exterior, interior, motor. My next project is to cut and weld in the new panels for the rear wheel wells. Then get it painted this spring or summer. I have all the moldings for this truck, which are goin back on after its painted.
