My battery is dead every morning. It only started going dead once I hooked up my new carburetor's electric choke. So my question is, how are you supposed to wire up and electric choke? Thanks a bunch - Chad
presently the wire has been removed to save power, but the way I had the thing hooked up was that the ground wire was grounded to the body - I know that was all fine - and the power wire was connected to the battery side of the Soleniod - That's what is bothering me... It's like it is sucking my power down all the time, so how is it supposed to be connected? - Chad
OK thanks for all your help. I think I've figured it all out. I ended up splicing the power wire from the choke with the white wire at the voltage regulator. I've tested it all out and I think it's working prefect. - Chad
the choke needs to have a solid twelve volts to work properly. on ford products I tie into the starter solenoid. i'm speaking of the type with two small and two largepoles.connect it to the ignition side of the solenoid, thats the right hand terminal if looked at from the front.
An electric choke will work off a 6 volt source - it just takes a bit longer for the bi-metal strip to heat up. I have them running off the STA connection on the alternator (which is 6 volt) and they work fine
