    OH wow thanks! The power of proper semantics at work! (Exactly the type of intel I signed up for and got active here on ecj5.)

    I will study harder on the choke stove. The oriface plate seems a pretty simple thing to fabricate with tighter oriface holes if I had the proper gasket, although I'm not sure a gasket even matters given there is no actual vacuum seal as it is.

    Thanks again.

    There is a little vacuum, which draws the hot air through the stove and into the choke cover. There is a tiny passage internal to the carb.

    Only the tube from the air horn to the stove looks out of place. If it seats down in further, it will be fine.

    Orifice plate? The plate on the manifold? Don't mess with that. Just unmangle the tube and push the tapered part further into the hole.

    The TSM has an article for each carburetor circuit that describes how it works. A little background about function will help you.

    Thanks. It does make more sense knowing that it's a closed heat exchange tube down inside the intake manifold. Also, I've not found the TSM readily available on the internet. It's my understanding that the TSM is not be confused with a Chilton manual which seems more than a little broad to be of much help (1957-1986 jeep commando/Comanche/truck manual).
