Donny,

After 4 years, finally cranked up my 56, started right up but notice the electric choke wasn't opening. Choke is wired to number 12 spot on Power Plus Eight fuse box. The 10 Amp fuse in the 5 position on the box had blown. Choke is on a Edelbrock 1403 Carburetor. I replaced it with 15 Amp fuse or should I stay with 10 Amp fuse. Believe the original 10 Amp fuse that blew might have been of questionable origin. Thanks

10 amps should be more than ample. Did it pop immediately, or was it a slow to blow situation? If immediate, the choke is shorted to chassis.

The only time it pops is when the choke is hooked up? If you disconnect it, does the fuse hold the circuit fine? If so, I'd say you have a short. do not increase the fuse size. need to dig deeper into this when I get back
