Hi all

I've just removed my old (twin) choke cable and fitted a single cable to my Holley carb.  Can anyone advise on how to refit the choke cable switch.

I couldn't really see how it was fitted to the original cable.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Attached via a clip that you slide over the switch.
At least on mine it was and it looked very factory-ish.
Rather fiddly, hence the reason I ended up not refitting it.

If you can get a single cable from a 2000, 2.5S or a Dolomite, that will have the fittings to take the choke light switch.

Not PI's as they have a twin choke.
