retro-fit 1970 etype with three carb set-up


Freshman Member
I have intstalled a three carb set up on my 1970 E Type. Having trouble getting the manual choke to work with out binding. Anyone have any ideas on the subject.

Make sure line is as straight as posssible with no hard turns. Maybe lube cable housing with silicone or powdered graphite ( one or other ). Does the choke work by hand with the cable unhooked? Check throttle plate clearances make sure they move OK and check the main jet is centered. I am assuming SU setup?

Can you supply a few detail photos? There are a number of things which will cause the thing to bind up. Is the cable a solid one or multi-strand? Have you a manual detailing the proceedure to set it up?

Just trying to get info to guide ya.
