For some reason my starter solenoid isnt giving the required 12 volts to open the elc choke the entire way. the choke is brand new with the carb. Where can i hook it up so that the choke will open all the way? instructions don't give a place, all they say is don't do it on the coil. friends told me not to hook it up on the batterty either. that leaves the alternator. if its the alternator, which of the three wires do i hook it up to?can someone help?

I ran mine through the firewall with the A/C wiring, and into the fuse box. Make sure you hook it up to a switched power source. (I used the acc fuse) If you have if connected to a continuous power supply, it will constantly drain your battery.

Look at your coil positive terminal. What color is the wire?

The alternator should have one heavy gauge wire and two smaller wires. One of the smaller wires should be the same color as the coil positive wire. This is the wire you want to hook your electric choke up to (Ignition switched 12 volts).

I just crimped a male blade connector on the end of the hot lead and shoved it into the key on 12v connector on the bottom of the wiper motor. Just turn your key on and put the test light or meter probe up into the connector at the bottom of the wiper motor to see which one has voltage. Nice tight fit. Works great.
