Do you mean the TUBE that connects to the automatic choke? My BC carb has a tube that runs from the carb to the exhaust manifold. The tube opening rests on the manifold and a metal plate holds the tube in place.

I believe that you have a carb - or at least an automatic choke assembly - that isn't stock. aof all the Chevy sixes from this general period through 1962 I've never seen any with electric choke heater elements. Electric choke heating elements were seen on carbs used on other makes however, so I suspect that's what you have.

Reading the side of the carb it say’s Rochester BC. I know I have not been able to find an exact picture of my carb with this electrical connection. So is that what I am possibly looking at, a heater element? If so is it necessary to reattach this connection? I will post a picture later when I'm with the car.

It appears that some one has replaced the stock choke control with something of a later model that happens to fit in the space provided. As others have said the BC did not have an electric heat element as a stock item. I can forsee all kinds of difficulty in attempting to get the choke to operate properly with this combination.

Here are the pics of the carb. Now that I actually look at it I dont think its a BC. Maybe someone told me that and I went with it. If anyone has any ideas of what it is please let me know. I'll try and look for some numbers off it to google.

Its a BC-I don't see a hot air pick-up tube running down to the exhaust manifold.This is a must.It connects to a choke stove (tin cover) that is clamped around the exhaust manifold.If the stove is missing I believe that NAPA sells a substitute.You can make a line (steel tubing).

I have tried to find something on the Rochester BC-I but I have not been unable to find anything. Is their a certain year that this carb was used or a specific number? My carb no loner has the tag. Also I still do not know were the electrical connection goes or the hot air pickup.

There is NO eletrical connection running to the carb. or the choke.The exception would be if some one would have replaced the hot exhaust heated air choke cover and thermostatic spring with an eletriaclly heated unit.I have never seen such a thing available for a 6 volt system and a Rochester carb.

The BC or automatic choke Rochester was used from 1952 up into the '70's.

Hi Hobbyjp,

Here is a bunch of info for the Rochester Carburetors prior to 1960. There is some info about the Model "BC"s.

Cheers,

None of the Rochester BC's that I have seen have this type of electrical connection. I think I will just find an original carb and use it.
