I just bought a set of hooker headers for 65 Mustang... they came with a small "U" shaped tube welded to one of the ports. Is this the heat tube for the factory choke... I will cut it off if I don't need it. Thanks, Jeff

Yep, I was told that they were for the choke. I cut mine back, so they didn't get in the way but left most of it on just in case I wanted to go back to the original carb.

The "U" tube for the choke heat came on my Hooker Competition headers. Since they were ceramic coated, I didn't want to alter anything, so the tube remained. It is unused since the choke is electric.
