84 Ford Ranger

On a 84 ford ranger with a feedback carb. What would make the automatic choke housing get real hot to the touch. When I disconnect the wire that goes to it, it cools down. Like a preview of what I should look for before I take the carb apart. Also, how much oil pressure should it have. It is a four cyl.

Perhaps an internally shorted coil or the fact it is very close to the intake.

Take it out and look for burned marks on the coil. The element may be touching itself or have lost its tension. Any parts store should have a replacement or be able to order one.

That being said, take a look in the links in my signature file below for the answer to your other question.

Most carburetor rebuilding kits come with pretty good instructions, but you might want to pick up a shop manual for better guidance.
