I have the choke mostly working right for summer. Winter here gets down to -30C and summer gets up over 40C, and I end up fiddling with the choke settings a lot. But it's working well for warm trending towards hot, and I've been driving it about half the time, and it's so nice. The car gets 50% better fuel economy than my 2010 car that cost me like 6x as much, and every time I go out, someone says something about it, usually "hey what engine does that have?" and I get to tell them about how nicely the A14 has treated me over the years.

Ah, gotta love a Datsun. My 1972 got 38 miles per gallon (6.2 L/100km). Going by the speedometer suggested 42 mpg, but that gauge was reading too fast. No wonder it took me so long to get anywhere

I had to replace some of my chokes, they had lost some springy-ness. After that only needed to adjust it once for winter and then again for summer. Datsun DCG usessame choke as Weber DGV/ Holley 5200.Only $12 at RockAuto
