Austin Healey Sprite Locking Choke Interior - Bugeye

Locking Choke

$ 34.95

Original Bugeye choke knobs were never locking. We like these T handle assemblies, they twist to lock and are easier to operate. In particular, you can lock the choke during the first cold startup, and reduce the choke setting and re-lock it each time your car warms up a little more. This makes the choke a lot more user-friendly.

Almost every dash we have seen has been modified in some way or another but should you still have an unmodified dashboard in your car, you will need to enlarge the hole in the dashboard to install the slightly larger outer housing of this choke assembly. 

If you are building a concours car, this won’t work, but for everyone else, this is a nice upgrade that still looks “British.” 

Outer cable housing is 41.5 inches long. Inner cable is 48 inches long. This assembly is longer than the stock cable and housing. 

Restorers Note: Sometimes these cables need to be cut to length, Make sure you have a nice fair curve from the firewall to the carburetors. Make sure to double check that the nose is not hitting the cable housing when you close your bonnet, otherwise, the choke will actuate once you close the front of the car. If you cut the cable, make sure to remove the ferrule on the end first, and reinstall the ferrule on the freshly cut housing end.
