Hot wire for electric choke

I'm in the process of installing a new carb with electric choke and would like to know what wire to splice into for power.

Thanks, Cheyenne

Re: Hot wire for electric choke

You need an IGN power source. Many folks have used the power lead for the wipers. I haven't confirmed that the wipers are powered by IGN power though. Many chevy's (in later years at least) used ACC power. If you're running a solid state ignition (fed from 12V direct instead of using a ballast resistor / wire), you can tap into the ingition power feed.

Re: Hot wire for electric choke

My car originally came with a 307 2V that had an anti-diesel solenoid or whatever the official term for that was. Anyway, it's a heavy gauge switched 12V on wire - it would work well if your car came with that option. I now use that wire to feed my coil. I believe it was RED.

Re: Hot wire for electric choke

Thanks guy. I guess it'll be the wiper. Hadn't even given it any thought. My engine is a 250hp/350 and doesn't have that solenoid thingy. I'd seen them before and thought that it was a fast idle solenoid. Learn something new every from the site.
