Where is the best place to run the wire for my electric choke? Just got it put on and I know there are a bunch of places that I "could" put it, but I'm sure you guys have the knowledge of the "best" place for it.
AFAIK, tapping the ignition wire on the engine block is fine. The choke doesn't draw enough current to matter. Running a new wire from any +12 switched circuit under the dash would work well and avoid potential problems, but I think the first approach is just fine... will wait for corrections...I'm not thinking straight today... ignition wire, up by the key, or somewhere closer in the engine compartment?
Sorry, but it is likely tied into the ACC line of the ignition switch, which means that if you use the ACC prior to starting a cold engine, your choke will have already turned off. That line is fine to use, just don't use the ACC portion of the keyed ignition switch.But after trolling around on some other forums I discovered that the brown wire that connects to the blower motor is a switched full 12 volt source.
Same here, use the STA (stator) terminal. One wire, from positive terminal on choke to the back of the alternator......done.... ::I always use the "STA" terminal on the back of the alternator the same as Ford did. Yep, it only puts out 7 volts. It has worked fine for me with Autolites, Motorcrafts, Holleys, Holley/Motorcraft 4180's, Holley/Weber progressives, Holleys, and Edelbrocks
