So I was hookin up my electric choke and planned to hook it to the stator terminal of my alt(1G), but with the alt installed, I couldn't read the back of it. Skinnyways, I think the terminal with a black ring around it(as opposed to the one with the red ring and the other with a white) and that is closest to the dipstick is the stator terminal, am I right?

Just to confirm, it's the very top terminal?

Be careful: not all alternators have their terminals in the same locations. Each alternator have their terminals clearly marked, however.

Well mine is identical to the one in that picture. So is that top terminal the stator?

Is this an Edlebrock electric choke setup? If so they do not recommend hooking up to the ALT.

That terminal is labeled stator, so if it is identical to yours -- don't know why it wouldn't be.

It's a Holley Avenger. I'm sure you can hook up an Edelbrock to the alt, my guess is they're possibly worried about voltage fluctuations frying the choke.

If you are running an MSD ignition box and dizzy, the factory wire to the coil is not used. This wire can be used as a keyed 12v source to an electric choke. A bullet connector can be purchased that fits right into the factory connector on the end of the wire.
