I have the identical car and the AED is disabled (put a ball bearing in the 
tubing to keep it all looking stock) and hooked up a choke assembly onto the 
SU carbs (my vehicle already had the conversion to a choke before I 
inherited it).  Others on the list with much better technical knowledge will 
tell you exactly how to hook it up, but my system looks pretty straight 
forward and works very efficiently.

Lance   '70 3500S
