Anyone else out there find the wiring diagrams less than adequate for the 67 Cougar? I have a new carb with an electric choke - it needs to be hooked to a 12 volt key controlled wire. The only one I know of is the one on the positive side of the coil. Are there other locations that will work or is this truly the proper place to hook up this wire?

Sta

ok thanks - so STA is the right place on the alternator... Is that correct?

The alternator is the place to hook it at.. DO NOT use the coil positive side.. You will then be pulling some of the capable power from the coil which can eventually cause you problems..
