What is the voltage at idle?
The choke should be connected to the alternator, if not the idle speed will never come down.
The choke is on the right side. (passenger) he left side of the driver's side and not much is there.

not quite we got a new alternator and put it in, and upon first glance the idle is extremly high and their is smoke coming from the left side of the carb, it wasnt doing this on the old alternator i have now idea what the problem is now
Does you car have a spacer plate between the carb and intake manifold?
