240z dies when choke is fully open

Hah called it. 


Then again I shotgunned all the potential problems.


Backfire through the intake can definitely point towards poor timing/spark misorder, pretty damn big fire hazard with carbs.


Glad you got it running right.

From post #21 above:


Actually there is a procedure for diagnosing  engine problems. For example, before checking the intake/carbs etc you should check and set your ignition system so you know if there are problems and have the timing/dwell/plugs  etc mostly dialed in. After you correct the carb/intake problems  go back and recheck the timing/dwell etc. Otherwise you are trying to diagnose a problem while dealing with too many variables.


You learned a lot. Now on to the next problem.
