I've got a 1972 Bronco with a 5.0L/302 and aftermarket headers. There is nowhere to locate the choke heat riser and it is running rich. Any thoughts?

If you mean you just don't have a place to connect the tube, You need a kit like shoronco listed above. You use two hose clamps to clamp that short tube with tabs to one of your header tubes, then you can attach the flexible metallic heat riser tube between it and the fitting on they snorkel of your air cleaner assembly.

Or are you referring to the small insulated metal tube going between the stock manifold and the thermal choke?
