My engine has a 1983 4V on it with a electric choke . I read somewhere you run the stator wire from the alternator to it for power . I am not electrical guru but I understand it some . I do I Identify the stator on the alternator .

Its a real pain with out it working trying to control the idle after a gas pedal tromp . It stays at a high idle and you have to get out and idle it down .

Yeah there is a terminal on the back marked "S" on the case of the alt. Just don't snug it up to tight as they twist internally quite easy. Run that to your choke and you are just about there - there are a few screws on the choke housing (typically) that you use to fine tune the opening/closing of it. I can't say that the electric ones have impressed me to much though.....I'm probably not patient enough more than likely! ;>) I like the manual ones better - I seem to have better luck withthem being consistant

Remember to include a fuse in the line.

There's a "Sticky" on the Tech forum regarding this.
