Walter, one more thing. The Morgan owner is at the same level as the 
previous owner of my SD1. He didn't understand EFi or solid state ignition 
so he removed them. Stromberg carbs and points-how nice. The car will be 
much more pleasant with a properly operating auto choke than it will with 
manual one. So in short-I would ignore him. This is about the most polite 
way I can say it.
