I have a manual choke weber in my 77B. I installed the handle in the
blanking plate on the left side of the dash. Interestingly enough, I had
the opportunity to have John Twist do a check-out ride in my B last week.
One of the changes he recommended was to reposition the choke control to the
dimmer control location. As this hole is steel backed, it is a more secure
placement. I figure if it's good enough for John . . .
